The Mortenson Center for International Library Programs team welcomed ten library professionals who make up the 2017 cohort on Wednesday, May 24, 2017. We are very excited to welcome our ten Associates who represent seven countries.
The morning started with a brief walk from their residence to the Center, located at the lower level of the Undergraduate Library. Conversation over continental breakfast allowed the Associates and team to get better acquainted, which was followed by an introduction of the Center and 2017 schedule of activities, including formal introductions. The morning session finished with preparation for forthcoming program activities. To acquaint the Associates with their surroundings they did a tour of the campus, its surroundings, the Main Library and the Undergraduate Library.
