MONTHLY SPEAKER SERIES
Dr. Bashir Khoda
Additive Manufacturing: Our Potentials
Last week some of the Librarians and staff from NDSU Libraries attended and participated in the North Dakota Library Association annual conference. This was a great opportunity to further our connections with other Libraries in North Dakota.
Join NDSU Libraries as we premier PBS Makers on Tuesdays this fall!
MAKERS is a digital and video storytelling platform that aims to be the largest most dynamic collection of women's stories ever assembled.
Through original interviews, MAKERS brings together well-known figures such as Hillary Clinton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Oprah Winfrey, with the trailblazers that need to be known such as Christy Haubegger, the founder of Latina Magazine and Kathrine Switzer, the first women to run the Boston Marathon.
Author of Walking Into the Sunshine and former NDSU Professor of Physics, Ghazi Hassoun describes the Israel/Palestine conflict as central to his life's journey. He is a Palestinian who became a refugee in Lebanon as a result of the Israeli-Palestinian war of 1948. Ghazi will elaborate on the effects of the war not only from within the fighting countries but also how it effects the surrounding areas.
Please join us for Ghazi's presentation on September 16 at 4 P.M. at the Main Library in the Weber Reading Room.
