1. ANNOUNCEMENTS/PROJECTS/EVENTS
            A. GRADUATE COLLOQUIUM SERIES
The Library is introducing a new series of monthly graduate colloquia. The first in the series will be held on February 23rd at noon in the Library Classroom. Craig Lodis will be the speaker. His topic is “Testing the Perseverative Cognition Hypothesis: Examining the Relationship Between Worry, Rumination, and Heart-rate Variability.”
The Graduate Colloquia are an opportunity for students to talk in an informal environment about their thesis or dissertation topics, the research process - the problems they face and the resources that they use. This is also intended to highlight the role of Fogler Library in the students' research process. The colloquia will enable the presenters to get feedback from others. It is also an opportunity for other students who are contemplating doing graduate studies to see what is entailed at that level.
The sessions are scheduled for one hour. Students can use the full hour or split the time with another student. For more information, contact Joe Fernandez <joe.fernandez@umit.maine.edu> or 581-3611.
