gone wrong, and its very public aftermath. Who is telling the truth? Whose version of the story do you
believe? What does that say about you? This play responds to actual events that went on to generate a national dialogue.

When: Wednesday, March 11, 2015 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Where: McKeldin Library : Special Events Room (6137)
Event Type(s): Seminar

Ms. Valerie J. Gross, CEO and President of Howard County Libraries (2013 Library Journal Library of the Year winner) delivers a lively, interactive seminar to experience a vision that is ushering in a new era for public libraries everywhere. Though a focus on education and learning, libraries find that their inherent value is no longer questioned. They no longer need to constantly explain why they are important. No one looks at them anymore with a puzzled expression, asking, "Tell me again what you do?" Instead, the library enjoys heightened respect in their communities and optimal funding. Adopting the "Libraries = Education" vision repositions libraries as a key component of the education enterprise, alongside schools, colleges, and universities.

Since its launch in Fall 2013, UMD's Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship has been helping students establish startups to tackle important business and social challenges. Yet, not all students will become founders of new companies and they still can translate their creativity into impacts through intrapreneurship. On Monday, March 9, 2-3 pm, in Hornbake 2116, the iSchool Innovation & Entrepreneurship Reading Group will debunk the myth about innovation and entrepreneurship by discussing Gladwell, M. "Creation Myth: Xerox PARC, Apple, and the Truth about Innovation," New Yorker (May 15), 2011, pp. 44-53, available at: http://ter.ps/8jx. Light, healthy refreshments will be provided.

31. Beyond the Classroom presents the award-winning documentary "THE SQUARE"

When: Monday, March 09, 2015 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Where: 1102 South Campus Commons, Building 1
Event Type(s): Movie/Film/Video

"We go to the square to discover that we love life outside it, and to discover that our love for life is resistance."

What does it mean to risk your life for your ideals?
How far will five revolutionaries go to fight for the future of their country?

The Egyptian Revolution has been an ongoing rollercoaster over the past two and a half years. Through the news, we only get a glimpse of the bloodiest battle, an election, or a million man march. At the beginning of July 2013, we witnessed the second president deposed within the space of three years.

The Square is an immersive experience, transporting the viewer deeply into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the news. It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights, struggling through multiple forces, in the fight to create a society of conscience.
