Research is a mosaic ...
The 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.
Time and Location: P-207, 1-2 pm. Refreshments: Drinks & dessert will be provided!

need to focus attention? Journal of Academic Librarianship, 27(2), 81-89 and Hernon, P. & Schwartz, C. (2002).
