My co-investigator fro the CAVAL Visiting Scholar Project, Warren Cheetham, shared this quote with me. It resonates with me as I reflect on working with librarians around the world.
“If you get engaged in international library work, your personal life will be transformed every time you encounter and embrace a foreign culture; your personal boundaries will be expanded. International collaboration is needed if we want to make this world a more livable place.”
Jesus Lau, President, Mexican Library Association
We just submitted a draft of an article based on the academic library data from our surveys and focus groups last year. I look forward to more contributions as we move forward.
