The 6th meeting of the China-Japan-Korea Digital Library Initiative (CJKDLI) was held on December 1 and 2, 2016, at the National Library of Korea (NLK) in Seoul, Republic of Korea, and four staff members each from the National Diet Library (NDL) and National Library China (NLC) and nine from the NLK were in attendance.
