KCPW, j. willard marriott library, merrill-cazier library, and utah

this morning, joyce ogburn (director of the j. willard marriott library at the university of utah) and i were interviewed by lara jones of KCPW public radio in salt lake city, utah. (update: interview archive)

i know joyce from the university of washington, where she was, until last year, associate director of the libraries, resources and collection management services. it was a pleasure to be on the show with joyce and it was great to learn more about their "democracy and informed citizenry" events, organized in large part by university of utah librarian heidi brett.

another utah library participating in the september project is utah state university's merrill-cazier library. from their flyer:
Utah State University's Merrill-Cazier Library and Cache MicroCinema will host a film screening and discussion as part of "The September Project." Join us for a screening of Fighting Back, an episode in the award-winning documentary about the Civil Rights Movement, Eyes on the Prize.

The screening is part of the 2006 common literature experience at USU, in which students, faculty, staff and the members of the community read Warriors Don't Cry: A Searing Memoir of the Battle to Integrate Little Rock's Central High, by Melba Pattillo Beals. Following the screening, Jennifer Ritterhouse, associate professor of history at USU, will facilitate a discussion.
