Event Type(s): Lecture

Join the University Libraries in welcoming Dr. Valerii Pavlovich Leonov to campus, where he will participate in a series of events (Apr 2 - 4) pertaining to Russia, scholarship and libraries.

Now director of the Russian Academy of Sciences Library, Dr. Leonov studied at the University of Maryland in the midst of the Cold War. As the only librarian sponsored by the IREX exchange program, an international effort to promote positive change, he credits this formative experience (1973-1974) as one that enriched his career and expanded his view of libraries.

First event on Tuesday, Apr 2. See website for event details.
