Toni Greider Completes Successful Trip to South Africa:

Toni Greider, Director of International Programs for UK Libraries, just returned from a successful trip to South Africa.  Toni was invited to open the third annual IAALD Africa Conference in Johannesburg and then met with the information communication technology groups from Latin America, Asia,  and Europe to begin negotiations to form an Information Communication Technology Network for Africa.  She then went to Cape Town and spent time with Dr. Beth Barnes, Director of UK School of Journalism who is working on a semester long study abroad course in Cape Town.  Next, Toni visited the University of Stellenbosch Library where Yusuf Ras is a librarian.  Yusuf was a Carnegie Scholar at UK Libraries during March and April of this year.  Toni had a productive and enjoyable trip and looks forward to additional collaborations between UK Libraries and South Africa.
