The Library Wants to Talk to You

Speaking of student controversy re: Art Library, library resources, and student input (or lack thereof so far) in all of these decisions, Olin librarian Diane Klare sends word of a conversation happening next Thursday and Friday. Yes, there is free food; yes, you have to sign up in advance; and yes, spots are limited:

The library is looking for students to participate in one of two focus groups discussions to help gather information about current library resources and services.  Free food will be provided for those who join in.  You can sign up for either Thursday evening, April 19, at 6:00 (which includes dinner) or Friday afternoon, April 20, at 12:30 (which includes lunch).  These conversations should take no more than an hour.  Space is limited, so we can only take the first 15 students who respond. To join either group, or if you would like further information, please contact Andrew Klein at aklein01(at)wesleyan(dot)edu on or before Tuesday, April 17.

Dates: Thursday, April 19; Friday, April 20
