Campus internationalization can be defined as “broadly referring to institutional efforts to integrate an international, global and/or intercultural dimension into the teaching, research or services function.”¹  How do academic libraries contribute to campus internationalization efforts? How do library internationalization efforts differ from or reflect campus internationalization efforts?  What services do libraries offer that support internationalization and what library organizational structures are most conducive to building these services? What are areas for growth? Join College & Research Libraries for a live panel conversation on library internationalization efforts. The panelists will discuss their C&RL pre-print study “Mapping Library Contributions to Campus Internationalization” and share ideas for both administrators and front-line librarians working to build these services.
