Abstract:
International networks of librarians can integrate the global context into research to support knowledge production for a globalizing ere.  Much research is inter-disciplinary and cross cultural and is best done with a diverse, knowledgeable, and socially responsible worldview. Librarians can help by building networks that provide access to collections, services, and people for researchers globally despite cultural and linguistic differences.
