18th Special Libraries Symposium

Thursday, July 31st, 2014, from 6:00-8:00 PM (guests can start arriving at 5:30)

Where: Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law, 3600 John McCormack Road, N.E. Washington, DC 20064, Room 303

Why: Held each year for LSC 888, The Special Library/Information Center, the course taught by Bruce Rosenstein; adjunct, Department of Library and Information Science

Who: Guest panelists from the local library/information science field, and CUA LIS students; moderated by Bruce Rosenstein

Because there are so many panelists this year, we will adopt a modified ‘knowledge café’ format: the panelists and students will be divided into groups, and there will be rotating meetings of students and panelists to discuss the state-of-the-art in the profession, plus best practices in careers and job-hunting. The bios of the panelists will be distributed by email ahead of time.

We will have designated times to facilitate networking between the panelists and students.
