We had our first brown bag lunch today and the turnout was very encouraging.
We now have five student volunteers to lead discussions over the coming weeks. We’re holding off assigning the students specific dates until we hear back from some professional librarians and faculty.
In the coming weeks we’ll have Alechia discussing distance learning and LIS programs, Ann Marie talking about moving nursing students away from Google and to more scholarly resources. Jeffrey will show us his poster on marketing and public relations for libraries and talk about his experience at the poster session. John R. will give us some background about the GLBT controversy in Hillsborough county libraries, and I’ll spend a lunch discussing some Library 2.0 topics.
If there’s a topic you’re interested in and would like an informal environment to discuss it with your peers and colleagues, this is the perfect place!
The brown bag is an informal meeting to discuss the library profession and research in library and information science and is open to all USF SLIS students. Brown bag meetings are bring-your-own-lunch and are on Wednesdays from 1-2pm in CIS 2020.
