Fulbright Awarded to Librarian

According to a Fulbright press release, Mengxiong Liu (an engineering librarian and professor of library and information science at San Jose State University) will be among hundreds of U.S. faculty and professionals traveling abroad this year under the Fulbright Senior Specialist Program.

What makes this noteworthy for this blog? Check out this quote from Ms. Liu, "One challenge is that I want to develop the information literacy program in Uruguay, because right now we have many sources of information but people don't really know how to use them. … Once people have the information literacy, they are more capable to get the information that they need."

That sounds like a good reason to give her a Fulbright to me. Congratulations Liu! Full details can be found at Fulbright awarded to Librarian.
