International student support at Bangor

Library bag at Aber Falls, N. Wales
On Monday, I was invited to run a workshop on the SCONUL Guidelines on Library support for International Students at Bangor University. As usual, I really enjoyed the experience, as all the participants were so enthusiastic and came up with some great ideas towards their action plan. As Bangor is a bilingual university, they are well placed to empathise with students learning a second (or third) language. Staff also has some interesting suggestions such as establishing a "cultural hub" of information, rather than one just targetted at international students, celebrating Welsh events such as St David's day with relevant displays about Welsh culture and setting up a cross university working group.
The sun shone and I had a very pleasant day!
