Librarians Abroad: Bette Anton in India

Bette Anton, head of the Fong Optometry/Health Sciences Library, was in Hyderabad in March as an instructor and organizer for a workshop for resource center librarians serving eye institutes. Participants included librarians from India as well as from Nepal, Guatemala, and Egypt. The event focused on developing the search and research skills of participant librarians, thus enabling eye care professionals to have access to the best current clinical and research information.

The workshop was funded by a 3-year grant from Elsevier Foundation (the "Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries" program) with additional support from the Seva Foundation, the LV Prasad Eye Institute, and the Association of Vision Science Librarians.
