      Agada, John; Hough, Brenda (2005-01)
      This is a presentation (of 11 slides) on Tuesday January 11, 2005 in the session sponsored by the Curriculum SIG titled "Preparing Students for the International Information Society: Studying the Global Context in LIS" at the 2005 ALISE Conference, Boston, MA. A solution to the problem of "global information policy regimes on core LIS issues...being designed largely by non LIS experts" is explored. A solution is proposed: North American LIS schools should adopt a school from the South and the case study of the Emporia-Nigeria Project discussed (go to URL http://nigeria.emporia.edu to get details).
