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.
