Primary Research Group Inc. has published Profiles of Academic Library Services for International Students, ISBN 978-157440-509-5
The report profiles the efforts of 6 colleges and universities in the United States to develop library programs that specifically cater to international students, fostering information literacy and student experience and retention objectives.  
The colleges and universities profiled are: 

•	Pennsylvania State University
•	The George Washington University
•	San José State University
•	Parkland College
•	Virginia International University
•	University of Colorado Boulder 

Pennsylvania State University (PSU) is made up of 24 campuses and hosts close to 10,000 international students. The PSU librarians collaborate with both on-campus and community partners to develop creative outreach opportunities. The George Washington University (GWU), a private university in the heart of Washington, DC, embeds librarians in the English for Academic Purposes program and has designed specialized workshops for international graduate students. The library at San José State University (SJSU) in Silicon Valley, serves as both the main library for the university and the San José Public Library system. The librarians here developed a creative and popular series of events for International Week – on a tight budget. Parkland College, a community college in Champaign, IL, serves many international student language learners. One focus of the collection development work here is ESL materials such as TOEFL test preparation resources. Virginia International University (VIU) serves almost exclusively international students. The VIU librarians have designed scaffolded instruction for ESL students, based on the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. Librarians at the University of Colorado Boulder have applied for and received grants to support outreach for international students. They developed both online learning objects and thoughtful programming for this population. 

The 57-page special report was written by Amanda B. Click, Business Librarian at American University in Washington, DC. Amanda earned her PhD from the School of Information & Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, her MLIS from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and her BS from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
