Library Welcomes Special Guest from Bethlehem University


From: Lewis University

Posted on September 14, 2015 by Lindsay Harmon

For the next two weeks, the Library will host Juana Juha Mousallam, Secretary to the Library Director at Bethlehem University. Juana, a BU graduate, will work with Library staff to learn more about the operations and goals of an academic library and will receive training in library functional areas that are not available to her at her home library. During her visit, she is also interested in learning about Chicago cultural history.

According to its website, Bethlehem University, one of our partner Lasallian institutions, was the first university established in the West Bank. It is a Catholic Christian co-educational institution of higher learning founded in 1973 and is open to students of all faith traditions. Its library, which began as a classroom full of donated books and now houses a staff of 12 and a collection of more than 88,000 books and journals, is in the midst of a major renovation that will feature new collaborative spaces and upgraded technology.
