SLIM Department International Trips
We are committed to learning in an international context
Travel + Study Abroad
Both ESU and SLIM have a strong commitment to learning in an international context, as these learning experiences help our students become better librarians and information specialists.
SLIM offers global experiences courses that are designed to allow students to explore timely issues arising from the dynamics of global interactions of information technology, government policies, the structure of knowledge, and the operations of libraries, archives and information organizations.
All students in good academic standing (3.75 GPA or higher preferred) from the MLS and PhD programs are eligible to apply. The selection system ensures that students at each of SLIM’s regional program sites have equal opportunity to participate. Preference is given to students in their final semesters of study, but students are eligible to apply if they will have completed at least 12 credit hours of study in the semesters prior to the trip. Scholarship support for these study trips is available through both the Office of International Education at ESU and through the Martha Kruse Furbur fund at SLIM.
PREVIOUS STUDY TRIPS HAVE INCLUDED:
- North America

Future plans include trips to South Africa and the Czech Republic, as well as return visits to Bulgaria, England, Scotland and Serbia.
All SLIM global experiences courses must comply with all requirements and directives from the ESU Office of International Education, including any travel restrictions or warnings from the U.S. State Department. Student safety and security are paramount and SLIM reserves the right to cancel any global experiences field trip if instructed by the Office of International Education.
