TWIST Tour: Bldg. 240 Library
The latest TWIST tour (Tours of the Women in Science and Technology Program) will explore Argonne’s hidden gem, the Bldg. 240 Library. The Library includes books, journals, microfilm reports, technical reports and more. We will explore the Library and learn how to navigate through its multiple resources.
The tour is scheduled for Thursday, May 11, 2017, from 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Bldg. 240. The group will meet at the Reference Desk on the 5th floor. Please arrive by 11:15 a.m. Due to a limit on the number of participants, registration is required. Register online by 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 10.
The TWIST tours are co-organized by Natalia Saraeva (NE) and Ray Patchak (ESQ). These tours are designed to give all Argonne employees an opportunity to learn more about the work being done onsite. About three tours per year are planned, with a different site for each tour.
TWIST grew out of the laboratory facility tours offered to high school girls at the annual Science Careers in Search of Women Conference. Beginning in 2012, WIST members Ja-Quel West (MCS) and Lydia Finney (XSD) recognized the value and popularity of these student tours, and co-founded the tour series so that everyone in the lab could have opportunities to learn about the exciting research being done here.
