HSLIC Development

Knowledge Cafe

The Knowledge Café is a monthly meeting for HSLIC staff and faculty to come together to share experiences, learn from each other, and build relationships. This welcoming environment will not only allow us to grow as individuals, but it will foster a more collaborative approach to fulfill our overall library mission.
