Training Sessions

In addition to providing training to students and faculty who are working on international projects or traveling abroad, Yale librarians make presentations at conferences and provide customized training sessions for libraries around the world such as a program for librarians in Laos (below).


International Projects

The Yale Library is involved in a growing number of international activities, some of which are implemented in cooperation with other organizations around the world, and others that are conducted within Yale.
