Powers of Ten Dialogue
Thursday, April 11, 1:00 p.m., 107/108

This forum will be a container for powerful conversation, an exploration of different perspectives on issues in higher education and how they affect our practice and ethic as academic librarians, now and into the future. The dialogue will be framed by a short presentation by Char Booth but will largely be based on what participants bring to their small group discussions and the larger community. Come ready to contribute and explore.
