Tibetan Studies collaboration with U. Toronto

Tibetan Studies Librarian, Dr. Lauran Hartley, will lead the work of coordinating Tibetan-language acquisitions at Columbia and the University of Toronto in a new pilot project. She will also provide research-support services to University of Toronto faculty and students via email, phone and video conferencing and will visit the University of Toronto annually. 

This international collaboration will harness the existing library expertise in Tibetan collection services at both universities to increase and expand the availability of resources to a wider community of scholars in both the United States and Canada.

It is expected that the faculties and students of both institutions will benefit from the innovative service model, which provides for jointly sponsored acquisitions trips to enhance the Tibetan collections at both universities, and a shared point of service for research consultations.
