In the Spotlight at Bury Book International Education Library & Archive ~ Literature from the 1980's

For this post I thought I would highlight a few of the pieces of literature one can find in Bury Book International Education Library & Archive.  I took a random selection of literature from the 1980's and took a picture of each cover with my phone to help present the literature in a more meaningful way below:


Education for International Development: Strategies for Professional Integration: Strengthening Foreign Student/Private Sector Interaction (1985) by Hugh M. Jenkins for the National Association for Foreign Student Affairs. 


Foreign Student Recruitment: Realities and Recommendations, A colloquium held at Wingspread, Racine, Wisconsin, March 26-28, 1980 and sponsored by The National Liaison Committee on Foreign Student Admissions. Edited by Hugh M. Jenkins for the College Entrance Examination Board.

The Right Mix: The Report of The Commission on Foreign Student Policy (1981) by the Canadian Bureau for International Education/Bureau canadien de l'éducation internationale

The Cross Cultural Adaptation of Hong Kong Chinese Students at Canadian Universities (1986, September) by the Canadian Bureau for International Education/Bureau canadien de l'√©ducation internationale [Advance copy - unrevised] 


Containing Crisis: The Response to Overseas Student Groups in Hardship, A Report by the Working Party on Crisis and Hardship Arrangements for Overseas Students (1985) by the UK Council of Overseas Student Affairs (UKCOSA)


Handbook for Community Organizations Working with Foreign Students: Developing, Maintaining, Revitalizing Programs (1986) by the National Association for Foreign Student Affairs. 




Please note that all of these publications were donated to "Bury Book" by a Senior International Education Scholar who remains active today.  If you are interested in donating all or part of your international education library I would love to hear from you!  Currently, Bury Book Library & Archive are in my home so access can be a bit of a challenge to coordinate.  Future plans (post dissertation and funding) are to make the library & archive more accessible.
