Monday, October 11th, 9:30-12:00
Carl Fields Center (Prospect @ Olden), Multipurpose Room 104

Following up on the 2008 prospectus on Princeton internationalization presented by Professor Jeremy Adelman (Director, Council on International Teaching and Research) and Diana Davies (Vice Provost for International Initiatives), the Library and the Council are jointly sponsoring an update on the University's international projects. With faculty from many departments, librarians, leaders of OIT, and members of the Council on International Teaching and Research, current and future projects and plans will be showcased in brief presentations by faculty and librarians, and roles for researchers and librarians will be explored. The question to be addressed in this forum is, "As plans for international teaching and research partnerships are hatching, which modes of participation and support can or should the Library (with its own international connections) undertake to best enhance their quality and effectiveness?"
