This fall, the Department of Library and Information Science will hold a series of four Community Conversations. Members of the DLIS community, faculty, students, alumni, and local librarians will meet to discuss emerging issues in librarianship and information science.
The first event will be held on Monday, September 8. The topic is “Community Building – Making Connections in an Online Program.” We will explore how best to network and to develop a shared culture with future LIS professionals. Refreshments and social hour will start at 6:00, with the conversation taking place from 6:30-7:30. Interested individuals can meet for more socialization and conversation at a local bar afterward.
Save the Dates: Three other Community Conversations will be held on Tuesday, October 14, Wednesday, November 12, and Thursday, December 4. At the first Community Conversation we will vote on discussion topics for the next three meetings.
The Community Conversations will be held in the Information Technology (IT) building in room 109. The IT building is located at 535 W Michigan Street, on the corner of Michigan and West.
