Sabbatical in Paradise
Weintraub, Tamara
Community & Junior College Libraries, v14 n3 p153-160 2008
A community college librarian from Southern California describes her semester-length sabbatical on the Pacific island territory of New Caledonia, and how the professional, cultural, and language experiences changed her outlook about her job back home. Working at a local library on several projects organizing and processing special collections of materials, the author returned with a new set of useful skills, a refreshed sense of purpose, and a greater understanding of the cultural and language experiences of her own library's diverse users.
