Celebration 2017

Hosted by Butler Libraries, the annual Celebration of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity was held on November 15 in Irwin Library's Collaborative Learning Space. This annual event recognizes and celebrates faculty and staff research, scholarship, and creative contributions.
