Library Loop: History of Snow Science
Prim Library Community Events
Talks @ Tahoe is the premier speaker series from the University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe, hosted in the Prim Library. If you missed our recent [email protected], Preserving Data: The Legacy Mt. Rose Snow Science Research of James Church with Universities Libraries’ Tara Radniecki, Associate Professor, Head of the DeLaMare Science and Engineering Library, you’re in luck. Due to bad weather, the event has been postponed and will be rescheduled. Check our [email protected] webpage or follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter) to find out when.
Can’t wait for the James Church and Snow Science conference? University Libraries is proud to offer an online exhibit, Nature and Man: The Warm Philosophy of Dr. James Edward Church, available now. Those interested in learning more about the legacy of James E. Church are invited to visit the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center on the main campus in Reno to view and experience the new exhibit on display outside the Special Collections and university archives (third floor).
In addition to [email protected], some upcoming public events include the Katie Lewis Artist Gallery Opening and Reception, Summer Art Workshops, Classical Tahoe, and the Writers in the Woods Literary Speaker Series. If you would like to check out these and other public events organized by the University, please visit our Arts and Community Events page.
