Two Illinois librarians presented at this year’s Brick & Click Libraries Conference. Melissa Burel and Sarah Park, both from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, were part of a panel for the session “Snap, Click, Chat: Investigating the International Student Experience”. The presentation covered the strategies Lovejoy Library staff used for learning about the needs of the growing international student population at SIU-Edwardsville. These methods included interviews, surveys, and photo diaries. Staff chose the strategies after an extensive literature review of what approaches had or had not worked at other libraries.
