Diana Amerson, Government Documents Librarian at the Charles W. Chesnutt library, received an award from the members of the FSU Sociology Club for her outstanding dedication in the development of LibGuides for the Fayetteville State University’s annual, North Carolina Consortium for International and Intercultural Education (NCCIIE) Model United Nations Conference. FSU's 2012 participants attended the conference, which was held from March 22 - 25, 2012 in Greensboro, NC. The Model United Nations is an academic simulation involving students in role playing as UN Ambassadors who debate a wide range of issues on the United Nations agenda. Students select a country to represent and participate in debating such issues as current events, topics in international relations and diplomacy on the United Nations agenda. LibGuides integrate multimedia content into library services by promoting library resources to their users. By creating subject or course guides, librarians can make available information portals and research assistance pages for finding academic resources. LibGuides are quickly becoming the standard way to share research information with our students, faculty and staff and the community.
