UCBA Faculty Share Research at Lightning Talks

by Lauren Wahman

The UCBA Library was excited to host its first Lightning Talks on Thursday, March 22.  Three faculty showcased their current research through informal, 15-minute presentations.  Attendees had the opportunity to learn from colleagues about their research efforts, enjoy light snacks, and learn from each other during the Q&A for each presentation.
