Meeting Room A, Lillian H. Smith Library (239 College St. - opposite UofT Bookstore)
To showcase its recent acquisition of Yourprof digital audio talks (www.yourprof.com) and highlight its extensive digital collection, the Toronto Public Library and Yourprof are holding the first of a series of free events to allow library patrons to hear and meet Yourprof speakers.
For his talk, Jim Lavery (Centre for Research on Inner City Health, St. Michaels Hospital; Joint Centre for Bioethics, University of Toronto) will speak on his Yourprof series Global Health Research.
Paul Stevens (Professor and Canada Research Chair Dept. of English, University of Toronto) will speak on his Yourprof Talk, Winston Churchill's Military Romanticism.
E-mail [email protected] to reserve a seat.
"Learn On The Go" live events invite self-directed learners to listen to, and ask questions of, Yourprof speakers and get to know the library's extensive digital collection. Top academics and professionals will provide 15-minute overviews of their Yourprof Talks then take questions. These free events will be held periodically at various TPL Branch locations.
Launched in November 2009, Yourprof is designed for the roving, curious mind. www.yourprof.com hosts an eclectic collection of original, thought-provoking 30-minute audio talks - from pop culture to history, medical research and the environment.
