Profile: Meet Ann Fuhrman, United Nations Librarian at Missouri State University

From The Springfield News-Leader:

Ann Fuhrman is a United Nations librarian. No, she doesn’t work in New York City, headquarters of the world organization. She works on the first floor of the Meyer Library at Missouri State University. The Meyer Library is one of only 43 libraries in the nation designated by the U.N. as a depository of documents. It is the only such library in Missouri, and Fuhrman is its enthusiastic advocate. She is an ambassador not only for her domain and its contents, but for the United Nations in general.


Most of MSU’s U.N. collection is digital, but that doesn’t mean you’ll find what you’re looking for without some help.“We live in an age of info-plenty,” Peters says. “Being able to find what you need is actually becoming more difficult.”
