For example, this past week (from June 18th to June 20th) The International Center welcomed two delegations: the first included participants from Croatia relating to anti-corruption, and the other was a multi-regional project relating to American libraries. The participants of the latter were from diverse countries all over the world: Chile, Ethiopia, India, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Portugal. During their two-day stay in Indianapolis, I accompanied the American Libraries delegation in their meetings; for example, we traveled to Indiana University in Bloomington to the School of Library and Information Science. We also visited the Sheridan County Library and the downtown branch of the Marion County Library. A wide range of library-related visits were scheduled for these participants so that they could have a holistic view of library systems and trends in Indiana and the United States in general.
