Fall 2013 Graduate Student Library Workshop Series

Hello from the NYU Libraries:

As the fall semester kicks off, we’re offering our annual series of Graduate Student workshops where you can learn everything from how to organize your bibliographies, to how to track down those tricky citations, to how to be a more effective research assistant (and much more). For the complete listing of these sessions, and to sign up, go to:

–> http://library.nyu.edu/grads

You can also get the new school year started right by joining us at our Annual Graduate Student Reception. It is a great opportunity to meet your subject librarian, as well as mingle with your fellow graduate students over some complimentary food and drinks. We will be giving away NYU Bookstore gift certificates to some lucky attendees. The reception will take place:

–> Thursday, September 12th, 5:30-7:00, 8th floor North Reading Room, Bobst library

Please RSVP by going to http://library.nyu.edu/grads

We have been working hard over the past few years to expand and improve our services and spaces to fit your needs, and we hope you’ll help us keep improving.

We look forward to meeting you and wish you the best of luck this semester!

Aberrant Waste: Ocean Plastics: A talk by Max Liboiron, 2/15

NYU Bobst Library’s Coles Science Center presents:

Aberrant Waste: Ocean Plastics A talk by Max Liboiron

DATE: Wednesday, February 15, 2012
TIME: 5:30-7:00PM
LOCATION: Bobst Library, 2nd floor, South wing, Avery Room
RSVP required: http://tinyurl.com/oceanplastics

There is plastic in every ocean in the world. Plastic is a unique pollutant that defies current theories and practices of pollution control we have come to depend upon. This illustrated talk will focus on a single sample of ocean plastics taken from the North Pacific Ocean and follow the threads of how it was collected, how samples are used in science and advocacy, their place in the popular imagination, and how an individual specimen can and cannot scale up to illuminate a new global pollution that will characterize the twenty-first century.

Max Liboiron is a PhD candidate in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at NYU and is the Regional Co-Director of the Plastic Pollution Coalition East Coast. You can find more about Max’s work on plastics at http://maxliboiron.com/.
