The Center for Research Libraries, along with the Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials (SALALM) and the Western European Studies Section (WESS) of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), is co-sponsoring an "International and Area Studies Workshop for Librarians" on Friday, June 26, 2015. The workshop is timed to coincide with the ALA Annual 2015 in San Francisco. The full-day workshop is designed to assist librarians who are newly responsible for Western European and Latin American humanities and social sciences collecting. It will cover publishing trends in Western Europe and Latin America, providing reference services, and tips for getting up to speed quickly as a librarian newly assigned to cover these world areas. Specifically, the workshop includes presentations on Latin America, Spain, and Portugal, Francophone and Italian Studies, and Germanic Collections.
