New library programs serve international students
January 10, 2013
International students can receive special library tours and research workshops designed for them this spring. Language challenges and cultural differences can present barriers to academic success for some international students. Libraries in their home nations may be vastly different from academic libraries in the United States.
- Tours of James Branch Cabell Library: Jan. 16, 4 p.m. and Jan. 22, 5 p.m.
- Introduction to Research: Feb. 6, 7 p.m.
- Finding Information in the Library I: Feb. 25, 5 p.m.
- Finding Information in the Library II: March 19, 6 p.m.
These workshops are a partnership between VCU Libraries and the Global Education Office. No registration is necessary. Workshops and tours are free and open to all.
For a detailed description of the workshops and additional helpful information, including foreign language dictionaries, see VCU Libraries' International Students Guide.
