Science Diving on the Ag Quad

Thu Oct 19, 2017

Agriculture and Life Science Graduate Students Library ImmersionFirst year grad students on the Ag Quad—Cornell Library invites you to take a deep dive into the sciences this coming January.

The Library is pleased to announce a newly focused science immersion program seeking 1st-year graduate student participants in agriculture and life sciences. The 3-day intensive program will convene in Mann Library from January 17 through January 19, 2018. Cornell librarians will join faculty members from the College of Veterinary Medicine and the College of Engineering to lead an exploration of different stages of the research lifecycle (research, scientific collaboration, data organization, science communication, and author rights).

This is the 2nd year that the Library is running the program at Mann, following the highly successful Humanities Immersion Program offered at Olin Library for the past several years. Last year’s participants at Mann gave the experience an enthusiastic thumbs up for building their readiness for advanced research in the life sciences—and grad school success.

Cornell students interested in participating in the coming January session at Mann are required to submit an application that includes a compelling statement of interest. Apply by December 1, 2017.
