Sue Miller, Instructional Services Specialist in Syracuse University Library, has been nominated for membership in the Phi Beta Delta honor society by Dr. Patricia Burak, Director of the Slutzker Center for International Services. As described on its web site, Phi Beta Delta “honors those who serve internationalism – the idea of a world connected, of respect for different traditions, of the need for education to enhance knowledge of the many cultures that are part of a globe that we all must share.” Sue will be installed as a member of Syracuse University’s Alpha Sigma chapter on Monday, April 9, 2007 at 4:00 p.m. in Hendrick’s Chapel.
Dr. Burak nominated Sue in recognition for her recent work in organizing and leading the Library’s International Students Working Group. This team of librarians and library staff is committed to assisting SU’s international students in making effective use of library facilities, resources, and services, and in developing information literacy and research skills. Accomplishments include the design of a special web page for international students and the delivery of several workshops on Library resources, evaluating sources, and avoiding plagiarism.
