Feliciter;2010, Vol. 56 Issue 6, p230
In this article the author discusses the concept of international librarianship. She claims that the concept is oftentimes misunderstood as being a librarian in a foreign country, and clarifies that it refers to the collaborative effort among librarians across geo-political boundaries to share cataloguing data, create frameworks for cross-border inter-library loans and advance information literacy. She also invites other librarians to join associations, such as the Canadian Library Association.
