How Darwin allowed us to understand the meaning of life (from a fungal perspective)

Dr. Nicholas Money will be giving a talk at 3:45 on Friday, September 18th, 2009 at the Brill Science Library. This talk will tie in to Brill's Fall Orientation on the same afternoon (1-5). Dr. Money's talk will incorporate his research into Darwin's theory of evolution.
I've seen his slides! I can't wait for the talk... it should be really interesting. Get ready to see some crazy-fast spores.

Hi everyone,

We are getting very excited about the event! We've been talking to vendors who are willing to help us out with prizes and snacks. Elsevier is going to provide us with an iPod and coffee, EBSCOhost has already sent us a bunch of cloth bags, pens, and sticky-notes, IEEE is sending us some mini-mice, and SciFinder will bring us some good things to give out.

Can't wait to see you on September 18th.

Brill Photo Contest!

Do you have a great picture that deer that eats your flowers? An amazing close-up of a bug? Did you spend your summer taking amazing pictures of the sands of the Sahara? Then you have a chance to win some great prizes and have your work exhibited to the Miami community. Brill is kicking off our Fall Orientation with a Nature Photo Contest. All students all welcome to submit photos; winners will be selected by a panel of judges. Photos need to be emailed to or dropped off at the Brill Circulation Desk by September 15th.

Brill Fall Orientation!

This September 18th from 1-5pm the Brill Science Library welcomes new and returning students to stop by and have a (re)introduction to the library. This year's theme will be Darwin and Evolution. It's a great opportunity to learn more about the resources and technology Brill offers and broaden your understanding of evolution. There will be fun and informative stations, a nature photo contest, free snacks, and lots of prizes--you could win free text books or an iPod! This event shouldn't be missed!
