The faculty of the Simmons College Graduate
School of Library & Information Science is pleased to offer a
series of public, lunchtime, brown-bag seminars. We invite all students,
faculty, and staff from the entire Simmons College community to attend.
The colloquia speakers are full-time and adjunct faculty as well
as advanced doctoral students. The topics may be completed research
or research in development. It's a great way to practice a speech
before a conference or just a way to hear and discuss new ideas.
Talks are scheduled on Tuesdays, 1-2 pm, Room P-207. Dessert and
drinks are provided.
