Looking forward we would like to create a digital archive of students research work while they are abroad similar to our student senior thesis database. We hope that the LC communities who are abroad will not only consume knowledge, but produce it as well.
We are also in the initial stages of developing "virtual libraries" of secondary and primary sources using Zotero. We have started building one for our Ecuador program. Building a virtual library will improve the quality of the students work by allowing them to access and build on previous research done onsite, and also foster more collaboration between our campus in Portland and our communities overseas.
