Wednesday, Feb. 14 - Lectures and Group Work

We completed the lectures today, and the groups began to work in earnest toward their presentations tomorrow.

The university President paid us a visit in mid-morning, and he promised to return tomorrow just before lunch to see the presentations. Dr. Sawarng Pupatwibul got his doctorate at Illinois State University, and he currently represents this region on the Thai constitutional revision committee. He and 99 others travel to Bangkok every Monday. Nongnath and I asked him to include universal access to libraries as part of the education platform in the new constitution. He seemed agreeable!

Many senior staff in the universities and libraries have studied in the U.S. and they seem delighted to have an American library administrator visit them. Gratifying. I'm trying to represent all of you well. So far, so good.
