A Freedom to Read Week event happening in Toronto today . . .
The Canadian Library Association will be presenting its 2013 Advancement of Intellectual Freedom in Canada Award to the Citizen Lab at Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto.
Here’s the announcement, with more information about The Citizen Lab’s vision of protecting and preserving open communication, and its efforts in upholding the principles of intellectual freedom and human rights.
Please see the attached file for the MRU Library’s statement in support of Dale Askey of McMaster University in regards to academic freedom.
Calling on all students . . .
Are you working on an interesting project, on your own or as a group? Would you consider sharing your research with the MRU community?
Student Research Day, taking place Wed March 20 on Main Street this year, is a great opportunity to do just that. You can either do a research poster or a 10 minute presentation, oral or multimedia. Register by Fri, March 15 to hold your spot. The earlier you register though, the longer the period you will have access to support seminars and on-line help sessions while completing your projects.
Your posters can be printed for free!
Still not sure? Visit the Student Research Day Website for more information and check out what other students have done in previous years. The application form is also there.
