Showcase, Celebrate, Honor
Join us in celebrating 75 years as the department of Library and Information Science on November 7th at the NYC Municpal Archives in downtown Manhattan. “Appropriately commemorate…in style,” said Pat Canale, Chair Coordinator of the event. Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception while browsing archival displays provided by the Municipal Archives and the university within the grandiose marble establishment. Honorees will be recognized as distinguished alumni but “this is a celebration of everyone…a showcase of their accomplishments in these 75years,” Canale added.
