Tuesday, Feb. 13 Workshop first day

The group here is about 35 librarians from academic libraries in the region - Pibulsongkram, Naresuan, Chaing Mai. Like last week's group, they are eager to learn, but most of them are even more reluctant to speak English. Many obviously understand a lot of what I'm saying. Good eye contact and recognition on their faces. The lectures were well received. I'm overjoyed to meet and work with librarians half way 'round the world and find we have so much in common and a similar commitment to our profession. The five work groups were formed the first day, so they could begin working together right away. That seemed to be effective. You'll see me with each one. There are also two photos of the kick-off, one with two VPs of PSRU.
