Academic Library Services to International Students Interest Group (ACRL)
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, US/Central
International students attending colleges and universities in the United States come from all over the world. They not only bring with them special skills and unique backgrounds, but also library experiences in their home countries. Developing an understanding of the international students' cultural backgrounds and their prior library experiences can strengthen library services and strategies for outreach to international patrons. Come join ACRL's Academic Library Services to International Students Interest Group for a discussion with a panel of international librarians on library services and practices in various countries, and an exchange of ideas for services to the international students.
