Fred Pond, MLS, in Lima, Peru

Dana Librarian Fred Pond, MLS, recently participated in a professional visit at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PUCP), in Lima. Building on a university collaboration which was formed in 2010, Fred & Bailey-Howe Librarian Laurie Kutner spent several days working with librarians at PUCP, discussing building relationships between librarians and teaching faculty.  Specifically, UVM & PUCP librarians worked to enhance access, or discoverability of library information resources, such as databases, journals, books, and research guides, similar to what is available at Dana’s website, Research Guides By Subject. At the end of the visit, Fred & Laurie attended a Latin American Librarian conference, the International Congress of University Libraries (CIBU 2016), held on the PUCP campus. UVM & PUCP librarians will continue to exchange knowledge in the coming year; a follow-up visit may occur in the future, including professional exchanges in other disciplines.

Fred is an acting member of the Dana Library staff through June. He is currently the liaison for the departments of Family Medicine, Surgery, Anesthesiology, and Pharmacies, and has broad interests in Health Sciences, History of Medicine and Vermont History.
