We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.

Fall Scholarly Communication Symposium: Scholarly Uses of the Internet in Science – Friday, November 1 at 10:00 a.m., Murray Room, Lauinger Library
with panelists Professor Anne Rosenwald, Department of Biology,
Professor Lisa Singh, Department of Computer Science,
Professor S. James Gates, Jr., University of Maryland Department of Physics
and moderator Professor Janet Mann, Departments of Biology and Psychology, Vice Provost for Research
This symposium brings together a panel of experts in computer science, biology and physics to discuss the ways that scientists use the Internet to create knowledge, disseminate and share data and communicate ideas, opinions and concepts. With examples from their own experience, the panelists will highlight some of the greatest opportunities and challenges new technologies offer the sciences. We will also explore the issue of whether the use of the Internet for scholarly communication in science differs from its use in the social sciences or humanities.
RSVP by October 28 to Bill Olsen, Social Sciences Bibliographer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-687-9012.
