Good Librations: Because learning is not just for students

 

Good Librations is a series hosted by the library for UWG faculty and staff. Topics will vary but the consistent goal is for the UWG community to come together socially to learn about and discuss helpful resources. These will be held on Fridays 3pm-5pm (ish) in the Aquarium on the 3rd floor of Ingram Library. Refreshments will be served.
