FC: Positively peru 2011 | UNT College of Information

1: Grad students and professors of the College of Information, School of Library and Information Sciences at the University of North Texas descend on Cusco, Peru to automate a public school library. School officials welcome us with food and open arms. | Glorioso colegio de cienciaS de cusco

3: The bibliographic journey begins! | We have brought with us donated books for the school library and scanners for the automated check-out process. We spend the first day sorting and re-packing books to deliver to the library.

4: Students come out to help! | At the school, computers are networked and an online catalog program is installed.

5: Books are tagged with bar codes before being added to the online library catalog. Goodbye outdated card catalog!

6: The library has hidden historical treasures sitting on the shelves; some date back to the early 1800s! | Books are cleaned and repaired with care.

7: The library soon begins to take shape!

8: Not all our time was spent in the library!

9: cusco

10: explore | Maras & Moray | Weekend bus trips took us to the salt flats of Maras and the Inca terrace garden of Moray. The countryside is full of life--baby alpacas, llamas, sheep, oxen, cows, and farmers at work.

11: Getting an early start!

12: "Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone." | Built on a steep hill in the 15th century, outside of Cusco, lies Ollantaytambu, an Inca royal estate and ceremonial center. The view from the top was inspiring!

14: pisac | At the edge of the Sacred Valley of Peru, we climbed to the Inca Temple of the Sun in Pisac. Explorer Francisco Pizarro destroyed Pisac in the early 1500s.

16: "Good price. Baby alpaca."

17: Where ever we went there were opportunities to shop and meet the local villagers.

18: Machu Pichu - one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

19: Hiram Bingham, a Yale historian, came across the Lost City of the Incas in 1911.

21: The whirlwind trip was highlighted by the travel and work experiences we had and the friendships we made! And, as a bonus--a new library for the students at Glorioso Colegio de Ciencias de Cusco!
