Great news! Touro College Libraries’ orientation program has gone global! For the first time, we were invited to present our library resources via video conferencing to our Lander Institute in Moscow, Russia. The presentation was given in both Russian and English. (Did you know? We have many multi-lingual library staff!)
The experiment was a success. In fact, we have already been invited to do the same for the coming Fall semester.
Our next step in global representation will be to make this presentation available for our international Touro students in Germany, France, and Italy. (Now we just need to brush up on our German, French, and Italian!)
If all this talk about Moscow has left you with a craving for borscht and a desire to see more of its beautiful architecture, why not take advantage of the cheapest form of travel – books! Check out the Encyclopedia of Contemporary Russian Culture or indulge in Russian literature like some Tolstoy – both available in full-text online.
