Library Director Mark Dahl Off to Kosovo!
Watzek Library Director Mark Dahl has been awarded a Fulbright Specialist appointment to visit the National Library of Kosovo. During October 2019 he will work with the National Library and other departments within the Kosovo Ministry of Culture to develop a strategic plan for the National Library.
The National Library of Kosovo is located in Kosovo’s capital, Pristina. It’s mission is to preserve, promote and make accessible the cultural heritage of Kosovo. It also serves to coordinate and support other libraries within Kosovo. The National Library hopes to develop a strategic plan that will increase library services and develop a wide range of library collections that represent Kosovo’s cultural heritage.
The Fulbright Specialist program pairs highly qualified U.S. academics and professionals with host institutions abroad to share their expertise, strengthen institutional linkages, hone their skills, gain international experience, and learn about other cultures while building capacity at their overseas host institutions.
