Senior Research Spotlight

The gong will strictly enforce the two-minute time limit!

Event canceled – please check back for similar events in the future

Are you a graduating senior? Have you been working hard on a senior thesis or project lately? Does your project involve new media? Can you talk fast?

If all of the above apply to you, we welcome you to submit a proposal for our Senior Research Spotlight. Together with co-sponsors CURF, CWiC, and Weingarten Learning Resources Center (VPUL), we invite twenty graduating seniors in any of the four undergraduate schools at Penn to share their work that involves new media (audio, video, image collections, software, 3D printing…) in a collegial atmosphere in front of peers, faculty, librarians, and administrators from around campus.

Presentations will consist of two-minute lightning talks, with time strictly enforced by the gong pictured above! The event will take place on Thursday, April 29, 2015, at 3pm in the Class of 1978 Pavilion, Kislak Center, 6th Floor of Van Pelt Library. The room will be set up theater-style, and students will stand at the front podium to deliver their talks.

For more details, please see the event website. If you are interested in participating, submit a registration form by Friday, April 24, 2015, by 5 pm. To consider your submission, all we need by April 24 is the registration form. If you’d like to attend the event, please register here.  We hope you’ll join us on April 29th!

Microsoft Word Office Hours


Are you working on a large document, such as a thesis or dissertation, and need help formatting all of those pages? Do you have tables and figures in said document that you just can’t standardize? Are page and section breaks driving you up a wall? If you answered yes to any of these questions, fear not: the WIC Desk is now holding Word Office Hours on Fridays from 2-4pm! (Not all Fridays — please check the WICshops calendar for details and to sign up).  We are happy to help with any Word concerns that you may have, so please feel free to stop by the WIC desk on Friday afternoons from now until the end of the semester.  Happy writing!
