Silver cover on Isl. Ms. 174, 19th century copy of the Qur’an
Join us for an open house exploring interesting bindings and enclosures on a selection of manuscripts, printed books, and artists’ books in terms of what they disguise and what they reveal. Our first introduction to a book often comes via its cover or enclosure. While many covers plainly identify and entice us to peruse their contents, others obscure what they protect and may even leave us wondering if what we’re looking at is in fact a book. Other covers are so captivating as to overshadow what they enclose, leaving us reluctant to venture past them for a look inside.
04:00 PM to 06:00 PM
Hatcher Graduate Library Special Collections Research Center, 6th Floor
As a first-year student, it's hard to figure out what you need to do to get an internship or to understand what interests you have. It’s difficult to know what employers look for or how might your interests equal a job or a major.
No worries, we designed an experience just for you.
During this 50-minute workshop, we hope to...
- Walk you through what employers look for in interns
- Help you set goals to prepare yourself to be a GREAT candidate
- Debunk major and career connection
Join us for a panel discussion and refreshments for the opening of the Strengths of Refugees and their Community exhibit.
Refugees have been at the forefront of political discussion in the United States as the Syrian crisis escalates and xenophobia heightens. Much has been said regarding these refugees, but all too often the voices of refugees themselves are left out of the conversation.
Have you ever wondered whether you are allowed to use someone else’s work? Or whether you have a copyright in a work that you have created? If you are not entirely sure how copyright works, this is the workshop for you. Sip some coffee as we discuss the basics of copyright law in the US. This 90-minute workshop from Yuanxiao Xu of the U-M Library Copyright Office will cover copyright concepts from the public domain to fair use. All are welcome.
