USJ signed agreements to officially establish two academic library alliances initiated by UM for the development of academic cooperation between mainland China, Macao, and Portuguese speaking countries. 



This week, the University of Saint Joseph (USJ) signed agreements to officially establish two academic library alliances initiated by the University of Macau for the development of academic cooperation between mainland China, Macao, and Portuguese speaking countries. As a founding member of these two alliances, the University of Saint Joseph continues its tradition of intercultural education and further expands its international reach.

The Academic Library Alliance for Portuguese Language Resources between the Macao Special Administrative Region and the Chinese Mainland (ABAMACHINA) aims to develop the cooperation between academic libraries of Macao and mainland China, and promote the sharing of resources in the Portuguese language. This alliance consists, for now, of 21 members from Macau and mainland China.

The Academic Library Alliance between Macao Special Administrative Region (China) and the Portuguese Speaking Countries (ABAMAPLP) aims to strengthen the cooperation between local academic libraries and university libraries from the Portuguese speaking countries. This alliance consists, for now, of 20 members from Macao, Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape-Verde, and Timor-Leste.
