Libraries Add Uzbekistani Librarians to Drexel’s Global Contacts

On Tuesday, July 24, 2012, the Libraries welcomed four librarians from Uzbekistan who were visiting the United States on a three-week U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program entitled “Conservation of Libraries.”

The visit allowed the four Uzbekistani guests to discuss similarities and differences between libraries in the two countries. Discussions focused on information technology, data searching, digitization and training of librarians. The guests met with dean of Libraries, Danuta A. Nitecki, as well as John Wiggins, director of library services and quality improvement, Peter Ivanick, head of library systems, Tim Siftar, liaison librarian for education and information science & technology, and Holly Tomren, head of metadata services. Another stop on their visit to Drexel included meeting researchers at the iSchool.

“Interactions with librarians from around the world provide Drexel with wonderful opportunities to join in global conversations about shared topics. We were pleased to be identified as an innovative library to host this visit,” said Dean Nitecki.

The Libraries has welcomed many international visitors through the past several years, including guests from Australia, Japan, Germany and Morocco.
