Thai Information Science academics visit CSU

Associate Professors Chutima Sacchanand and Tassana Hanpol visited the School of Information Studies during May. Chutima (who holds a doctorate from CSU) and Hassana are both from the School of Liberal Studies, STOU (Suhkothai Thammathirat Open University) in Bangkok, where they teach information science.

At CSU they discussed with staff of the School of Information Studies possibilities for collaboration. They also visited public libraries in Wagga Wagga and Canberra. As Chutima is currently President of the Thai Library Association they also visited the Parliamentary Library in Canberra, to meet the Parliamentary Librarian and ALIA President Roxanne Missingham.
