News: Note from Librarian Ambassador for Upcoming Program to India

5/25/14 – Nancy Bolt recently sent out the following note via ALA inviting librarians to sign up for the upcoming People to People Librarian trip to India:

Dear Friend,

For the last 15 years I’ve been working with international libraries.   If you are getting this, you probably purchased jewelry, scarves, or crafts from Bulgaria, Ecuador, Guatemala , or some other country I’ve visited.   Now I’m honored to be asked by People to People and the American Library Association to lead a tour to India November 2-11, 2014.You can learn more about this trip at www.peopletopeople.com/ALA

I’m excited to lead this tour because it combines visits to cultural sites and interacting with our librarian colleagues in India.   As People to People describes it:   You can experience India firsthand with your library and information services peers from India and around the world through vibrant professional exchanges, valuable networking, and meaningful discussions tailored to your focus and interests.

Professional highlights of the trip include:

  • Local library and information science professionals from various sectors for a mini-symposium in New Delhi.
  • Librarians and information technology specialists at local libraries (public, children’s, and school depending on the interests of tour participants.)
  • Professionals at a local university to learn about the extent of professional development available to Indian librarians and the delivery mechanisms for professional development.

Information about the cultural sites we will visit in New Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra go to www.peopletopeople.com/ALA

I hope you can join me for this trip to India.
