Lesley Farmer, Teacher Librarian Program Coordinator, presented two papers at the International Federation of Library Associations conference in Wroclaw, Poland—”Showing school library value” and “Data-driven field experiences for mutual support.” She also successfully coordinated the International Association of School Librarianship conference, which was held at the CSULB campus Aug. 4-8. About 200 school librarians and educators from 25 countries attended the event and toured local libraries. On June 2-3, the Alpha Chapter at CSULB hosted the Phi Beta Delta 31st Annual International Conference on campus. The theme of the event was Building Partnerships for Global Learning. About 50 attendees, mainly from the U.S., shared their expertise. Farmer gave two papers, one on internationalizing school librarianship, and the other on OERs and MERLOT.
