” The San Francisco Public Library welcomed two university students from Taiwan on Wednesday as part of an observational learning agreement between the public library and two universities — the National Taiwan University and Fu Jen Catholic University.Both students will spend four weeks learning about the operations of the San Francisco Public Library and to bring back ideas back to Taiwan on how the county can improve its library operations and resources.Sandy Hsieh, who has a Bachelor of Arts in Library and Information Science from the National Taiwan University, said San Francisco offers a number of services for different people including children and the homeless and wants to learn about the many programs the library offers: “In Taiwan, we don’t have so much of these services. I want to learn how they provide them and bring ideas back to Taiwan.” Hsieh told SFBay she wanted to bring back ideas on improving children services in Taiwan libraries.”
