ASU librarians deliver digital libraries to Rwanda

ASU Librarians Dan Stanton and Lisa Kammerlocher had the opportunity to travel to Rwanda as part of the SolarSPELL team, delivering information resources to places that lack internet connectivity. 

A former Peace Corps Volunteer, Stanton is passionate about local community development. Here, Stanton writes about his involvement with SolarSPELL, "contributing to the creation of the low-cost, rugged, solar-powered boxes could bring dramatic change to education in remote places," in addition to his recent trip to Rwanda. 

"Two of my greatest passions in life are travel and being a librarian," writes Kammerlocher, who works at the intersection of student success and e-learning. Here, she describes her "Top 10 Magic Moments" from her time teaching information literacy skills to students in Rwanda.
