Working with international scholars can be both a rewarding and challenging experience. The University of Kansas Libraries liaises with the Applied English Center and works with two international scholar immersion programs: the Junior Faculty Development Program and the Pre-Academic Fulbright Program. Both programs bring international scholars to the University of Kansas to prepare them for their respective academic opportunities. The goal of the programs is for international scholars to learn about English language, culture, writing, technology, and research. The libraries are an integral and integrated part of both programs and offer the international scholars the skills they will need to accomplish the high level of research expected of them. This poster will discuss the outreach and information literacy instruction that is presented to these scholars. The challenges, experiences, and outcomes of both programs will be laid out along with the steps for developing an outreach initiative to engage in similar programming at other institutions.
This is the poster from the poster session given at the Annual Conference of the American Library Association in New Orleans, June 26, 2011.
