This week we are highlighting three great events:
November 12th (Wednesday): LIS Conferences Panel
Simmons ASIS&T, SLA and ALA bring you a panel all about LIS conferences. We will be featuring speakers from all three groups to discuss how to cut conference costs, why you should attend a conference and the recent topics at all 3 conferences. RSVP if you can here.
12pm-1pm in Palace Road Building, Room 314
November 13th (Thursday): World Usability Day with Simmons UXPA
Participate in a Usability Lightning Round for a fast-paced, fun, and interactive approach to website evaluation and user feedback, featuring the websites of the Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysics Data System and Suffolk University’s Sawyer Library. Give real-time feedback on these interfaces, meet the people behind the websites, and share your UX tips and tricks…before time is up! No experience is needed to participate–just bring yourself and your thoughts on UX.

November 14th (Friday): Social Mixer with NEASIS&T (The New England ASIS&T Chapter)
Looking for all the latest news & scholarship from ASIS&T’s 77th Annual Meeting, but not able to make it to Seattle?
The New England Chapter is having a happy-hour mixer with the Simmons Student Chapter at Church Restaurant on Friday, November 14. We’ll be able to report back on the panels and events we attended in Seattle, as well as some association business. Current members, past members, future members, and non-memberes are all invited. Swing by any time between 5:00pm and 7:00pm to catch us and catch up!
Don’t forget to bring some cash to spend on Church’s creative comfort food and delicious drinks. Church is located at 69 Kilmarnock Street in the Fenway — and they have free parking in the lot behind the building. RSVPs encouraged (but not required) at NEASIS&T’s Meetup account
5pm to 7pm at Church in the Fenway
