Global Information Week provides events and a venue for students to reflect on globalization and its effect on their lives. The University Library is not only a place for research, but also a vibrant social center, particularly for undergraduates, where connections and contacts are made. Whether it be through student panels, information workshops or international music performances, Global Information Week offers students a chance to connect with the world.
This week of events is sponsored by MLibrary in conjunction with the LSA Theme Semester India in the World
