Forty-six delegates attended another inspiring USTLG meeting on Supporting international students at Leeds University on 22nd May 2013.
Many thanks to our speakers, who provided varied viewpoints on the challenges of supporting these diverse users, whether they are studying at partner institutions or campuses abroad, or coming to the UK and encountering the ‘library shock’ of getting to grips with our practices and terminology.
Thanks to Knovel for sponsoring the meeting and to Sara Thornes and colleagues at Leeds University for their excellent organisation and engaging library tours.
Thank you to Moira Bent for chairing the meeting and making first time USTLG members feel welcome.
Our dedicated tweeters were keeping those who couldn’t make it up to date via #ustlg and Lynne Meehan has produced a Storify on the USTLG Spring 2013 Meeting – Supporting International Students page. Presentations from the meeting will be uploaded to this page soon.
