I attended the Harrell Health Sciences Library Research and Learning Commons dedication events on Friday, Feb. 17. Activities included a fascinating talk by Jaime Casap, Education Evangelist for Google, a dedication and ribbon cutting, and a wonderful Open House to celebrate this absolutely beautiful facility. The event was a huge success including a contingent of librarians and staff from University Park and the campuses. Congratulations to Cynthia Robinson and her team for an amazing transformation and an excellent day of celebration.
