The Information Ambassadors: The 1990-91 Library/Book Fellows.
American Library Association, Chicago, IL.
The American Library Association (ALA) Library/Book Fellows program began in 1986 with a grant from the U.S. Information Agency. The program's purpose is threefold: (1) to increase international understanding through the establishment of professional and personal relationships and the accomplishment of mutual goals; (2) to promote international sharing of resources and increase access to U.S. materials in the host country; and (3) to enable U.S. librarians and publishers to enrich and broaden their career experience through a short period of overseas service. The bulk of the report consists of profiles of the 1990-91 fellows highlighting their overseas experiences. The fellows are: (1) Mary M. Wagner from the College of St. Catherine (Minnesota), who went to the Institute of Southern Africa Studies at the National University of Lesotho in Roma, Lesotho; (2) Lucinda Covert-Vail from San Francisco State University, who went to the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Spain; (3) J. David Martin from the University of Iowa, who went to Simon Bolivar University in Caracas, Venezuela; (4) James Krikelas from the University of Wisconsin, who went to the University of Crete in Rethymnon, Crete, Greece; (5) Michael S. Perdreau from Ohio University, who went to the National Library of Haiti in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; (6) Thomas Connors from the Bancroft Group in Los Angeles who went to the National Archives of Pakistan in Islamabad, Pakistan; (7) Wendy A. Simmons from the University of Maryland-College Park, who went to the University of Botswana in Gabarone, Botswana; (8) Artemis G.
