Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day - even geese!

Jorge cordially invites you to the second annual LITS Open House from 1:00 to 3:00 PM on Thursday, March 17th (which also happens to be St. Patrick's Day  - honk if you love Ireland!).

Over 20 posters covering topics from new directions in collection development to virtual computing labs will be set up in the Reading Room. Posters are configured to spark conversations between you and the presenters. View the complete list of posters and presentations.

In addition to the posters simultaneously in the Information Commons there will be six short presentations:
