12th Annual Mortenson Distinguished Lecture
Marianna Tax Choldin, Mortenson distinguished professor and director of the Mortenson Center for International Library Programs, will deliver the 12 th Annual Mortenson Distinguished Lecture, "Walls, Windows, Islands , and Bridges: Libraries along the Road to Civil Society."
Professor Choldin will discuss episodes, scenes, and symbols from her experiences with libraries, archives, and museums around the world that illustrate access to information and obstacles to access. She will talk about the roles these institutions and the people who work in them play in the movement of societies along the often-bumpy road to civil society.
The lecture will be held at 4 p.m. on Monday, October 21, 2002 , at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology Auditorium, located at 405 North Mathews Avenue in Urbana . A reception will follow. For more information, please call Gayle Voyles at (217) 333-3085.
