UK Libraries supports Study Abroad

Debbi Lloyd, former UK Libraries graduate assistant in Information Services, spent the spring semester with the Education Abroad Office developing a resource to provide basic UK Libraries information for UK students studying abroad.  The resulting libguide: Education Abroad: Research Resources is now available in the electronic orientation guide provided to study abroad students.   The guide has been very popular and is being heavily promoted though the Education Abroad Office. 
 Debbi’s work was part of a LIS625 Field Experience under the direction of Toni Greider, Director of International Programs.  The overall objective of the project was to provide a good resource for our students going abroad and also to demonstrate the value added that UK Libraries offers to academic service areas.  Tony Ogden, Director of Education Abroad, thanked Debbie for her “excellent and innovative work…aligning the library services to education abroad.”
