CIRSS Seminar Series

The CIRSS Seminar Series will meet on most Friday afternoons when classes are in session. Meetings will be held from 4:00 - 5:00 in 126 LISB unless announced otherwise. The aim of the CIRSS Seminar Series is to provide a relaxed, no-prep venue for sharing our current research by presenting reruns of our recent conference presentations. All CIRSS faculty and student affiliates are welcome to present, and session attendance is open to the entire campus community. Announcements and meeting reminders for the CIRSS Seminar Series will be distributed widely via the regular iSchool email lists for faculty, students, and staff. If you have any questions regarding the CIRSS Seminar Series, or, if you would like volunteer to lead a future session, please contact Janet Eke at 217-333-4701 or
