Upcoming CE Opportunity
Save the Date for the 2017 New England Science Boot Camp!
This year’s Science Boot Camp will be held June 14-16, 2017 on the campus of University of Massachusetts Amherst, in Amherst, Massachusetts. Science Boot Camp is a fun and affordable 2 ½ day immersion into science topics offering opportunities for librarians and library students interested in science, health sciences, and technology to learn, meet and network in a fun, laid-back atmosphere. Now in its ninth year, the New England Science Boot Camp has been hosted on multiple New England campuses and has been attended by librarians and library students from various regions of the US and beyond—and has inspired the development of other Science Boot Camps in the West, Southeast, and Canada!
Each science session will include one scientist presenting an overview of the field and a second scientist discussing their research applications within the field.
The topics for this year’s SBC science sessions are still TBD!
