Guidance for librarians new to area studies/MFL librarianship

Just to highlight for those of you who may be interested the excellent presentations given by our North American colleagues under the auspices of CRL, WESS and SALALM at an ‘International and Area Studies Workshop for Librarians’ held in San Francisco on 26 June 2015.

‘The full-day workshop is designed to assist librarians who are newly responsible for Western European and Latin American humanities and social sciences collecting.  It will cover publishing trends in Western Europe and Latin America, providing reference services, and tips for getting up to speed quickly as a librarian newly assigned to cover these world areas’

The slides of the presentations covering Latin America, Spain and Portugal, Francophone and Italian Studies, and Germanic Collections may be found on the website below:
