Abstract: The authors discuss how librarians from a medium size academic library can build a major international partnership through their successful leadership of an American Cultural Center in China. The authors describe bringing together scholars from their home institution and China and building cultural understanding among students at both institutions. This multi-year program is evolving into an ongoing international relationship in which future collaboration and knowledge sharing on opposite sides of the globe continues to grow.
