This program, presented in partnership with the Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences, the School of Communication, the Bienen School of Music, the School of Education and Social Policy, and The Graduate School, is a special introduction to library and information services for incoming doctoral students.

Join us on Wednesday, September 26 to discover the vast array of scholarly resources, services and technologies available through the University Libraries.
