Librarian Exchange at Duke University

This article, published by the Universidad de Concepción, discusses an upcoming exchange between the Duke Libraries and several university libraries in Chile. The exchange will bring five librarians from Chile to Duke in March and April 2012 and four librarians from Duke to Chile in May 2012. All of the Chilean universities are in the Maule region which was affected by the earthquake last year. The exchange was arranged by our University Librarian, Deborah Jakubs with a grant from the Carnegie Corporation. I hope to report on the exchange at the Section meeting of LASA in May. If you have questions or suggestions for our Chilean colleagues, let me know.
