2. ACA & LWB Student Chapters – 4th Annual Human Library

The Association of Canadian Archivists Student Chapter and Librarians Without Borders Student Chapter at the University of Toronto invite you to our annual Human Library event! This year, the ACA and LWB Student Chapters are teaming up to take over the Inforum Library and bring you an even greater event. Get the chance to meet and chat with prominent information professionals from the GTA!

Learn about the work that these information professionals do, the knowledge and skills required in their speciality, and the paths and strategies that got them there.

Students will ‘check out’ a professional for 10-15 minute sessions to get some one-on-one time with interesting and diverse information professionals. Ask them anything that comes to mind about their work!

Refreshments will be served. All Faculty of Information (UofT) students and staff are welcome!!

Thu, 7 March 2019, 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM EST. Inforum Library – 4th Floor (BL417)
