Area and International Studies Librarianship online course

The Indiana University Libraries Area Studies Department announces the return of our Area and International Studies Librarianship course ILS-Z 604 Class 15368 in an all-new format. In Spring 2016 we will be offering the course online, which means that we will be able to enroll students beyond the boundaries of Indiana University. If you know librarians, library students, or others interested in Area Studies Librarianship would you kindly help us spread the word? This course is team-taught by the entire department, who collectively have global subject expertise. Additionally, we will bring in other relevant experts in our discipline.

Topics include:
 history and current trends in the US
 collection development
 reference and instruction
 outreach
 partnerships and collaboration
 emerging technologies

Students will:
 Hear from prominent guest speakers from other institutions.
 Learn about important tools for working with area and international studies collections.
 Gain an understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing area studies librarianship.

International students are welcome; all non-IU students, please request enrollment information and direct any questions about the class to the ILS administrative office at or Marion Frank-Wilson at
