Fall 2015 Newberry Library Consortium Programs

Please see below for the Fall 2015 Newberry Library Consortium Programs for graduate students.  These workshops are excellent professionalization opportunities.  CGU EMS students receive priority consideration, due to our membership in the Newberry consortium.  Students wishing to attend should contact Dr. Ferrell.  Please be aware that students can apply to the Newberry for travel funding (usually for partial coverage) and also to CGU for the remaining balance.  Click here for Newberry funding information.
