Should Fondren Library offer treadmill desks, standing desks, bike desks or some other form of furniture that offers an alternative to just sitting? How might we map the exchanges among correspondents in a collection of over 300 Civil War letters? How do Rice scholars approach copyright agreements that they typically sign before publishing a book or article? Come hear how the 2016 cohort of Fondren Fellows approached these research questions--and learn more about the Fondren Fellows program itself.
The library is. . . a place, with quiet spaces, software, equipment, books, and expert help.
It’s also an incredible resource of digital information, literature, art, music, science and history.
Learn your way around with Fondren 101. It’s a tour, followed by a short class to show you where to go and how to look in the library. It’s your Fondren Library orientation.
Classes will meet in the Quad (East) entrance area of Fondren Library. Each session, including tour and classroom time, will last about 75 minutes.
