Think Globally! Enhancing the International Student Experience with LibGuides
Han, Ning; Hall, Susan L.
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v24 n4 p288-297 2012
Enrollment of international students in colleges and universities across the United States is growing. The relocation process can be arduous for international students as they face many barriers transitioning to a new environment. With retention as a key component in the success of academic institutions, what resources and services can academic libraries use to ease this transition? Minimizing confusion over specialized terminology and clarifying institutional services can boost outreach efforts geared toward international students. The authors investigate traditional instructional materials (pathfinders, static web guides) and outline the benefits of employing social media and Web 2.0 technologies offered in LibGuides. (Contains 5 footnotes and 2 tables.)
