Winter Tea Breaks

Tea Breaks will resume for the Winter Quarter starting TOMORROW at noon in the IS Salon. As always, you are welcome to drop in and out of the conversation with our guest as your schedules permit—we know your schedules are complicated, but spending just a few minutes introducing yourself to a senior colleague and hearing how they got where they are professionally can really pay off. (Between 25-33% of Tea Break encounters lead DIRECTLY to internship or post-MLIS job opportunities for our students.) And, of course, there will be treats.
