The CUNY-Shanghai Library Faculty Exchange Program

Title

The CUNY-Shanghai Library Faculty Exchange Program

Subject

Library cooperation; International librarianship

Description

The librarian exchange between The City University of New York (CUNY), Shanghai University, and Shanghai Normal University took place spring 2010-fall 2011. Eight faculty from each country participated. Discussion and dialogue with Chinese visiting faculty prompted inquiry and reflection among CUNY faculty. The Chinese universities secured instruction from CUNY visiting faculty related to librarianship and library science. Participants from both countries engaged in comparison between their library systems. The exchange built relationships and strengthened collaborative intent between the Chinese and American libraries, enabling CUNY’s Baruch College to design a second phase of the program, which will launch in September, 2012.
