Description

In the winter of 2010, a Denison University librarian became an adviser to a Habitat for Humanity "alternative" spring break trip to El Salvador. The students held several class sessions before the trip, and the librarian educated the students about library resources to learn about the country. This poster session describes the librarian's experience both before and during the trip, and offers ways that such an experience can benefit libraries and librarians.
