Students and staff from across the University of Michigan share their ten-minute stories about using or creating resources that are shared and reused across institutions or about using participatory, collaborative or transparent practices in education or research settings.
University of Michigan students are invited to “World Café: Race and the Arab American Experience" for a guided conversation about the lived experience of Muslims. Dinner (halal) will be served. To register for this event, go to umworldcafe.eventbrite.com.
Join us for another Third Thursday at the Clark Libary, where this month's theme is Treasures of the Collection. This is also the last chance to view the lovely Geography of Colorants exhibit.
Open to the public; light refreshments.

The Joseph A. Labadie Collection is the oldest research collection of radical history in the United States, documenting a wide variety of international social protest movements of the nineteenth to the present. It is named for anarchist and labor organizer Joseph Antoine Labadie (1850-1933).
Use of the Labadie Collection is open to all researchers, although special conditions govern the use of manuscript materials and researchers are urged to write or call ahead. Cataloged books, serials, pamphlets, and archival collections may be found in the University Library's on-line catalog, Mirlyn. A listing of some other materials can be found on the menu to the left. Duplication services are available, subject to the condition of the material and copyright or donor restrictions.
