The new online Science Digital Library of LinGang, whose premises is located on the left of the permanent venue for the World Laureates Association, or WLA Forum – in the Lin-gang Special Area in East China's Shanghai city – is expected to start operating in June 2023.

The building itself will start trial operation at the end of 2022.

Committed to creating a new reading experience for readers, the venue includes an image reception area, a professional service area, a traditional reading area and a digital experience area.
