Book Review: Bridging Worlds: Emerging Models and Practices of U.S. Academic Libraries around the Globe

Pamela Louderback

Abstract


In recent years, American colleges and universities have increased their emphasis on international engagement, emphasizing global awareness, interconnectedness, and student and community diversity. As a result, universities are establishing campuses, branches, and enhanced programs outside of the United States, particularly in the Middle East and East Asia, where they introduce Western higher education practices and philosophies. These collaborative partnerships focus on blending cultural, social, political, and economic communities, while exploring new territories in research, teaching, and learning. Bridging Worlds presents examples of academic libraries taking part in shaping these collaborations by acting as partners in the development of campus community, student life, and research from a global perspective.
