Published: Dec. 29, 2008

The Friends of the University of Colorado Libraries will hold its annual Information Day at Norlin Library on the CU-Boulder campus on Thursday, Jan. 8.

The event will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Center for British and Irish Studies on the fifth floor of the library. Information Day is free and open to the public and no reservations are required.

Jim Williams, dean of the CU Libraries, and Cynthia Grubb, president of the Friends, will welcome participants. Guests will view the exhibit "Essence of Rock: The Photographs of Williams R. Current" and selected materials in Special Collections. Reference librarians also will provide training for Chinook and databases in the computer lab.

A light, catered lunch will be served at noon. Immediately following the lunch break, a program titled "Behind the Scenes at Norlin Library" will be presented by senior instructor James Ascher. This program will give patrons an overview of how a contemporary research library functions.

The purpose of Information Day is to inform citizens that Norlin Library is accessible to them and to familiarize people with how to use Norlin while remodeling projects are under way.

The event is co-sponsored by the Camera newspaper. Pay parking is available in the Euclid Avenue Autopark.
