Being a project by the ASEAN Secretariat (ASEC), ASEAN Corner is one of the achievement projects for setting up the information centers in the libraries of Higher Education Institutions in ASEAN Member countries.
The objectives are to provide accurate, timely, and relevant information about ASEAN developments and the ASEAN member states; increase the availability of reliable multimedia resources on ASEAN for researches; and foster people-to-people connections and enhance understanding and respect among ASEAN peoples (especially the youth).
Phase 1 of the ASEAN Corner, establishment of the information centres or learning hubs, is proposed by the ASEAN Secretariat (ASEC) and sponsored by the Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF) for in-depth knowledge on ASEAN in the libraries of higher education institutions of ASEAN University Network (AUN) through the AUN Inter-Library Online (AUNILO) of which the University of Yangon is a member.
The authoritative information about ASEAN through digital resources comprising books, periodicals and videos on economic, political, security and socio-cultural aspects are provided at the Universities’ Central Library of the University of Yangon.
We would like to invite you to explore the digital archives and observe the display of ASEAN-related printed resources collection at our ASEAN Corner.
The ASEAN Corner was inaugurated with a ribbon-cutting by Rector Dr Tin Maung Tun and Pro-Rectors of the University of Yangon on 28 June, 2022 at the Universities’ Central Library, University of Yangon.
The 2nd ASEAN Corner Exhibition was held from July 26 to 28, 2022, and students, faculties and researchers from various disciplines visited and explored ASEAN-related books and digital archives.
