“Everything Has Changed Forever, Again.” A book talk supported by the Amesee Collection at Health Sciences Library
The Health Sciences Library will be sponsoring a book talk as part of the endowed Amesse Collection of Popular and Leisure Reading. The talk is titled, “Everything Has Changed Forever, Again” (based on the book What would Google do?), featuring speaker Martin Garnar, MLIS. Mr. Garnar, a Regis University faculty member, will address the topic of how Google is changing the way we think about almost everything. The talk will take place Friday, November 18th, from 12:00-1:00 P.M. in HSL’s Teaching Labs 1 & 2.
The Health Sciences Library Amesse Collection, located in the leisure hub of the Information Commons on the first floor, contains a wide selection of popular reading material, including current novels, nonfiction, & biographies, as well as popular magazines and a “Medicine in the Movies” section of DVDs. The collection provides an opportunity to take a break from your busy day. Learn more about the Amesse collection from our resource guides.
Come listen to our speaker over lunch (bring your own, and some munchies will be provided), then relax for a few minutes in one of the leisure hub’s easy chairs!
