Title:Spreading our wings: ECU MLS program in the global arena
Author(s):Marson, Barbara; Dotson, Kaye
Subject(s):Study abroad
Visiting scholar
Abstract:The importance of cultural competence in library practice has been noted by Montague (2013) and Overall (2009). Means of achieving such competence can be partially met by course content; however, research indicates that study abroad experiences can provide a richer experience. In addition, being able to complete an internship is another venue in which to broaden LIS education globally. Establishing connections and investigating possibilities are means to achieve global education goals. With these goals in mind, the MLS program at East Carolina University offered both study abroad and internship opportunities during the past three years.
