Trends in International Education: New Imperatives in Academic Librarianship
The author describes new directions in international education during the past decade and links them to new imperatives in academic librarianship. Five major areas of development are considered: foreign language instruction, study abroad, internationalizing the curriculum, foreign students and scholars, and technical assistance and international development. The author recommends six ways in which ACRL might strengthen its role as an advocate of international education. This article was written in connection with the work of ACRL's task force on international relations.
