Women’s History Month Colloquium 2021: A virtual memory book

Cunningham Memorial Library’s Events Area is usually the venue for the annual Women’s History Month Colloquium (from Gender Studies and other sponsors)  and the Library shares photos of those events. With this year’s virtual Colloquium, Marsha Miller, Research and Instruction Librarian and member of the Library’s Marketing team, was able to attend all but one of the events and did screen-grabs to represent and record the event for posterity. Those, along with some of the graphic announcements, are shared here. Don’t forget to check out the 4 blog entries on Women and American Health Policy.
