REMINDER: Digital Library Lecture Series begins on Thursday, 9/15
On Thursday, September 15, 1:30-3:30 PM, we are launching the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Kelvin Smith Library with the first of a year-long series of digital library lectures. The first lecturer is John Unsworth, Dean of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where he holds appointments as professor in GSLIS, in the department of English, and on the library faculty. From 1993-2003, he served as the first Director of the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities, and as a faculty member in the English Department, at the University of Virginia. In 1990 at North Carolina State University, he co-founded the first peer-reviewed electronic journal in the humanities, Postmodern Culture. Prof. Unsworth's lecture title is "The value of digitization for libraries and humanities scholarship."
The lecture will take place in the Dampeer Room of Kelvin Smith Library and is free and open to all.
