If your organization is interested in establishing and developing a joint international program in
China, it is inevitable to face both manageable risks and unpredictable changes. There are
mainly three types of challenges.
● Political impact on travel and visa application: the 2017 re-election in China and
leadership change in the United States affect how efficient for both sides to visit each
other and stay for work.
● Technology restriction on teaching and communication: While the fast internet speed
and open internet are taken for granted in the US, technological difficulties in China can
be a barrier for effective teaching and communication.
● Censorship: In China, censorship is always a challenge, especially in the current state.
Be proactive to work effectively within the constraints.
The presenter is intended to share some experience and best practice based on a successful
joint institute between University of Cincinnati and Chongqing University. As the first coop based
program in China, the program continues to be a leading model in international engineering
As the opportunities afforded by globalization expand, colleges and universities are committed to providing students with academic opportunities on a global scale. This has led academic libraries to focus efforts on meeting the needs of students and faculty at global campuses and study abroad sites. In this panel, we’ll be discussing the similarities and differences between our global library services programs and the opportunities and challenges we’ve faced, with practical advice on working with partners on-campus and overseas. This will be an interactive session where the audience will work towards formulating and refining global initiatives based on institutional needs.
As the opportunities and challenges raised by globalization become more a part of people’s everyday lives, colleges and universities are committed to providing their students with academic opportunities on a global scale. This has led academic libraries to focus their efforts on meeting the needs of their students and faculty at global campuses and study abroad sites. Also under the same trend, the number of global services/education librarians is on the rise with unique responsibilities and experiences. In this panel, we’ll be discussing:
the similarities and differences between the global library services programs at our respective sites;
the opportunities and challenges we’ve faced, including how to work with partners on main campus as well as overseas;
discuss how global library services may be evolving in the future.
Abstract: Can a library support an overseas program with a full-time librarian position? Can this position provide distant services successfully through e-learning techniques, social media and other methods? The answer is yes. As many American universities enroll students through a shared or global campus, librarians can play a vital role as the primary information and library services provider. The University of Cincinnati (UC) and Chongqing University, China (CQU) established the first shared engineering programs in China with mandatory co-operative education, the Joint Co-op Institute (JCI), in 2013. Students primarily receive on-campus instruction in China from JCI instructors; however, no UC librarian is onsite to provide dedicated support. In response, UC Libraries developed the new Global Services Librarian position as the lead presence for support of the Libraries’ growing global engagement and partnerships, especially with the JCI. This Librarian provides a full range of services, mostly at a distance, including instruction, outreach, and faculty support. This presentation will describe the development of the Global Services Librarian position, its roles in supporting the JCI, lessons learned in the first year of this position, and how this role could be adapted for other library environments.
This document is a supplement to the University of Cincinnati's Power Session workshop presented at Data Day 2019 by Richard Johansen and Mark Chalmers. The goal of this document is to reproduce the step-by-step instructions of the Power Session which demonstrated how to create interactive maps of social vulnerability at the county level. Familiarity with GitHub, R and RStudio environments are highly recommended, but not required to follow this tutorial. For a more in-depth explanation as to how the data was retrieved, cleaned, and manipulated, please refer to the full R script called Mapping_Social_Vulnerability.R located in the Scripts folder of the GitHub repository.

Is jazz serious art music? Is jazz in fact America’s classical music? I contend that much jazz is both. This paper is an exploration of these questions, not a history of jazz, although I will have to recount some historical facts. Rather, it is an examination of this music from two perspectives, seeking a convincing argument for my assertions.
