Internationalization & higher education

Internationalization & globalization of higher education is of interest to many.  If you would like to find U Library books on these topics here are two useful searches to try in mncat plus.

Note:  these examples use Advanced Search, quotation marks around phrases, and OR to combine related concepts.

internationalization image.jpg

internationalization OR internationalizing OR globalization

"higher education" OR "education higher"

In my first try at this search I simply entered internationalization in one box & "higher education" in another.  As I reviewed the expanded records for the results I discovered more terms to add to the search... thus, the image shows the revised version. 

In the results I also found another possible search term and decided to use that in another search example:

"education and globalization"

globalization image.jpg

"world citizenship" and other terms might be interesting to explore.

Results can be sorted on date, relevance, and popularity. 

You'll find both e-books and print books in the results. 

Click At a U of M Twin Cities library to check availability, and get it, or recall it.

The general process it to do a search & review the results for relevant items and the words/tags used to describe them, revise/expand the search, and get it!
