Educational advisers around the world respond daily to numerous questions about study or research in the United States. In order to adequately address the growing volume of these crucial inquiries, advisers must begin to develop themselves as information professionals. To this end Where in the World to Learn gives international education advisers a solid grounding in library and information management. It is the first guide ever written to formulate advising in terms of the principles and practices of library and information science. From it advisers will learn how to acquire appropriate materials, organize them in a useful manner, and effectively meet the needs of their clients. The author emphasizes the importance of advising for international education within the context of the accelerated internationalization of the globe. He further stresses the importance of developing advising as an information profession within the advance of the information age. His book demonstrates the character of advising as an information service involving the systematic gathering, organizing, communicating, and managing of information. The conviction of this work is that advisers can achieve maximum professionalization through commitment to developing themselves and advising as a systematic information service.
