Library Partnerships in International Liberal Arts Education : Building Relationships Across Cultural and Institutional Lines
Library Partnerships in International Liberal Arts Education explores the challenges and opportunities of independent American-modeled institutions of higher education through perspectives that are inherently international and intercultural because of the authors' own backgrounds, and in particular because of their institutional environments.
The authors are librarians, faculty, and technologists at institutions that belong to the AMICAL Consortium, a consortium of American-modeled international liberal arts institutions working together on common goals for libraries, technology, and learning.
The chapters describe library-anchored collaborations that demonstrate struggles, but also successes and rich possibilities, in these thoroughly international-and increasingly digital-liberal arts institutions.
They provide cumulative knowledge, reference points, and aspirational targets for planning future library-related collaborations in similar environments.
