1996 Enlace Fellow Honored

Former Enlace fellow Dr.  Jesus Lau (New York, 1996) will be honored as Librarian of the Year at this year’s FIL-Guadalajara.   Since 2002, the Guadalajara Book Fair has honored librarians for their contributions to librarianship in Mexico (http://www.fil.com.mx/reco/bibliotecario_somos.asp).

For SALALM’s 20th anniversary in Santo Domingo, Lau noted “la labor de SALALM es la mejor labor diplomática continental que hay en campo
bibliotecario, porque ha tendido un puente de conocimiento entre las culturas hispano-parlantes y la anglosajona de EUA, a través de los
materiales editados en la región para que los académicos y pensadores americanos tomen mejores decisiones económico-políticas que definen y
permean nuestro continente.”
