Connecting with American Faculty and Chinese Students Overseas: Repositioning the Library’s Role in the Digital Age Open Access Deposited

Last modified: 06/26/2019

As an increasing number of universities expand programs globally, libraries are seen as an essential partner for this endeavor. Some library units are fully or semi-fully integrated into these academic programs. The University of Cincinnati (Ohio, USA) and Chongqing University (Chongqing, China) introduced the first co-operative engineering education program in China in 2013. Since this time, the University of Cincinnati library has been striving to connect American faculty and Chinese students in three main areas:
1.utilizing library websites and social media for reference, instruction, and outreach;
2.playing a peer role for traveling faculty with course materials, elearning, and basic technical support;
3.developing a sustainable relationship with matching librarians in Chongqing for collection development and beyond.
This presentation is intended to share experience and practices with librarians in similar positions, as well as administrators looking to develop a similar position.
