Are you interested in librarianship abroad?
Looking for a unique practicum experience?
Would you like to represent SLIS on an international level?
Good! Because Allison Kaplan needs YOUR help!
Here’s the situation:
On Friday, May 10th at about 10:00am, there will be two librarians from Nazarbayev University Library in Kazakhstan. They are visiting the UW as part of a partnership with UW, and they are looking for 1-2 students to participate in a practicum over the summer of 2014.
Allison would like to have interested students come join our guests for a discussion in part to show interest in international experiences, and in part to let them know about the expertise our students bring with them to practicum placements. This will be an informal meet-and-greet, providing potentially interested SLIS students the opportunity to explore this exciting opportunity!
Anyone interested in simply meeting the Kazakhstani librarians are welcome to attend, including those of you who are graduating this May. Your attendance would be greatly appreciated in welcoming these guests to SLIS!
Please email Allison (email@example.com) by the Friday 5/3 if you would like to attend.
