Title:Going Global: Facilitating Global Research and Education at GMU Libraries
Author(s):Johnson, Melissa; LaFleur, LeRoy; Roszkowski, Beth
Subject(s):Academic Library Developments
Education and globalization
social science libraries
Abstract:Academic libraries as partners in the university’s teaching and learning activities must also play a key role in the development of these global initiatives. Academic libraries in particular are uniquely situated at the intersection of scholarship within their respective institutions. Furthermore, they have a long tradition of selecting and managing research resources across a variety of different departments and disciplines. Lastly, libraries often have personnel who are responsible for outreach to specific departments in the university that rarely communicate with one another. This centralizing role, which is both organizational and informational in nature, serves as a real strength to universities which are seeking to effectively integrate both their services and global scholarship throughout the institution.
