An Embedded Librarian in Cuba: Collaboration, Teaching and Book Buying in Havana

May 15, 2017

In March 2017, Jana Krentz, Librarian for Latin American Studies at Yale, traveled to Cuba as an embedded librarian in a Yale Course on Cuban history and culture, and as part of the Cuban Initiative of the Council for Latin American & Iberian Studies. During the two-week trip, she continued her work with students and also purchased books for the Yale University Library. On Tuesday June 13 at 2:00 pm (Bass Library L01 A&B), Jana will talk about her integration into the course, her expectations as an embedded librarian, and the reality of that role once in Cuba. She will also discuss the challenges of undertaking a buying trip to Cuba.
