Post Nearly a Shutdown Event - International Relations Committee - this

The resurgence of Democracy in Egypt and the associated revolution and
spreading of democratic freedom movements in the world is well represented
in the upcoming International Special Librarians Day event this Thursday,
April 14 from 6-8 PM.

Listen to Dr. Sohair Wastawy, currently dean of University Libraries at
Illinois State University, but formerly with the modern Bibliotheca
Alexandrina or Library of Alexandria in Egypt.  Dr Wastawy was a key
contributor to the rise of librarianship in Egypt and to worldwide
recognition of the Library of Alexandria.

Allen Overland is the Director of the National Endowment for Democracy’s
Resource Center.  This key global organization promotes democracy worldwide.
And Allen will discuss how he turned a small investment from the UN into a
Digital Library on Democracy.

As a bonus, we are please to have with us, Edna Reid, currently an
Intelligence Analyst with the FBI (shhh!).  She has been a major contributor
to librarianship in Asia where she was a founding staff member of the
Division of Information Studies at Nanyang Technological University and a
member of the National Library Board of Singapore.  Her presentation shares
her international experiences and how she has blended her library skills to
her present work.

Please join us with some networking at 6 PM and then in discussions with 3
brilliant librarians at the Georgetown University Law Library, which is near
the Union Station stop on Metrorail.
