On November 7th, the Department of Information and Library Science hosted its annual reception at the Woolery Mill in Bloomington. It was the first such event since 2019, having been suspended for the past two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The reception was attended by faculty, students, and staff of the ILS Department along with their friends and family members.
On April 12, 2023, the Department of Information & Library Science will host its annual End-of-Year reception at the FAR Center for Contemporary Arts. As was the case with our event in November, this will be our first end-of-semester event since the Spring of 2019. This event is for all faculty, students, and alumni, but we will also be honoring our 2023 graduating class.
This year ILS student events started making a comeback, with the department and student groups hosting two themed movie nights – one for Halloween and one for Black History Month.
Both the October viewing of Disney’s Hocus Pocus 2 and March’s showing of the Academy Award winning film A Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not be Televised) were sponsored by the Luddy School Office of Student Engagement, American Library Association – Student Chapter, and the Society for Rare Books and Manuscripts.
