Atlanta Emerging Librarians Summer Special Library Tours on August 7, 2015

Looking for a unique career path to pursue with your MLIS?  Special libraries are an interesting alternative to traditional academic, public, or school libraries.  Special libraries can be found at law firms, corporations, museums, hospitals, and non-profit organizations, among other places.  If you’re interested in working for a special library or just want to know what all the fuss is about, please join us for a very “special” afternoon on Friday, August 7th as we tour the Emory University Law Library and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Library. 

Hugh F. MacMillan Emory University Law Library Tour - The mission of the MacMillan Library is to support fully the scholarly pursuits of the faculty and students of the Emory University College of Law.  To fulfill its mission, the Law Library offers an active program of legal research instruction, an experienced and helpful staff, and extensive collections of law and law-related information.  This tour will be led by Elizabeth Christian, Emory law librarian and former intellectual property law attorney.

Stephen B. Thacker CDC Library Tour - The Stephen B. Thacker CDC Library’s (CDC Library) mission is to advance science, public health and safety through information. The library provides a full range of information services and products in support of public health research, policy and action. Through the headquarters library in Atlanta and its six branches, CDC Library serves CDC employees across the nation as well as those located internationally.  This tour will will be led by CDC librarian Rick Colbert and will include an overview of library operations, acquisitions, and services.


If you can join us for one or both of these tours, please RSVP via Eventbrite no later than Friday, July 31st.  Additional information and admission procedures to the CDC will be emailed after your RSVP.

An informal mingle will follow after at Tin Lizzy’s Cantina, 1540 Avenue Pl, Atlanta, GA 30329.  Join us if you can!
