Abstract: International students have made a visible presence on U.S. college campuses. They contribute significantly to the cultural life, academic research, as well as the economy in the United States. Academic libraries as a significant component of higher education play a critical role in the academic success of this unique student group. This article studies the issue of international students and academic libraries through a literature review about library services and information literacy education to international students in recent years. Selected research literature published between 2000 and 2005 is examined.The results reveal that most research focuses on commonly perceived concerns pertaining to international students’ use of U.S. academic libraries. Drawing on the current literature and author’s personal experience as a librarian working closely with international students at a U.S. university, this article examines several emerging issues and discusses the implications for future services to international students. The article concludes with recommendations for further study in several specific areas.
