Miss an Event?

For those of you who haven’t caught on, Northeastern University Libraries sponsors at least one event every month, from Meet the Author visits to  presentations by a successful alum. Though there’s nothing quite like sitting in front of a journalist-turned-author speaking about her experiences in Afghanistan or watching the tears fall down your neighbor’s face in reaction to a philosopher’s jokes about life and death, fear not! Technology has you covered if you missed an event. In addition to the iTunes U and YouTube University accounts, the library also has a Flickr page that allows you to scroll through events in a matter of seconds. As the Library Events Photographer, I urge you to check out this page and the Snippets Gallery, both of which feature the authors you may not have had the opportunity to see in person. In the glorious age of technology, it’s almost a sin to fall behind. Happy browsing!
