He graduated with a B.A. from Henan University in China in 1998, and completed his studies in Canada at Queen’s University (M.Ed., 2004) and McGill University (M.L.I.S., 2006). Junli has almost five years experience in cataloging and metadata services. His first position was as librarian at a campus of The College of the North Atlantic, Newfoundland and Labrador; he later worked as a contract Metadata Cataloger at Education Library of University of Toronto, a Chinese Manuscripts and Rare Books Cataloging Librarian for National Endowment of Humanities Project of Cataloging, Preserving, and Digitizing Chinese Rare Books and Manuscripts, The New York Public Library, and a part-time Chinese Rare Books Consultant for Library and Archives, Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto.
