iUniverse, Apr 20, 2012 - Education - 384 pages
Dr. Nasser Sharify, an educator, writer, philosopher, and poet, has made great contributions to the world of international library development and library science. He believes in the importance of libraries as a bridge to education and knowledge, and he has worked tirelessly on the metaphoric concept of BELT, a world building on education, lifelong learning, and technology.
In A BELT around the World, educators, librarians, and information scientists pay tribute to Sharify through this collection of writings. Providing an international and global perspective on education and technology, the articles not only focus on current issues but also provide a look back at the notable events of the last half century. The compilation reflects Sharify’s dedication to the globalization of knowledge and information as an attempt to unite peoples and cultures across the world and in order to bring down the barriers between different societies and cultures.
Compiled by Dr. John Southard and Dr. W. David Penniman, A BELT around the World provides a look at Sharify—the man, his work, and its impact on libraries, international learning, and technology.
