Visiting Librarian from Shanghai Jiaotong University

Courtright Memorial Library welcomes a visiting librarian Ms. Youhua (Audrey) Chen from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, one of the top five universities in China.

The goal of Ms. Chen's visit is to develop a comprehensive understanding of U.S. academic libraries’ operations including collections, services and management.

On October 20th from 12:30-1:30pm at Campus Center Dinning Room Three, Ms. Chen will give a presentation to campus about educational opportunities in Shanghai and Shanghai Jiaotong University. Mathematics professor Dr. Zhen Huang and librarian Betsy Salt will be guest speakers with Ms. Chen. We hope you will come to this presentation where we will explore the opportunities faculty, staff and students have for study abroad, exchange visits, and other learning experiences in China. RSVP to at 823-1027. The first 10 number of people who respond will get a free lunch voucher at room 1847.
