CUL Cookout - 6th Annual

Question: How many librarians does it take to grill a hot dog?
Answer: We’re not sure yet, but we always hit it out of the ballpark.

Join us for the 6th Annual CUL Cookout and learn more about how Central University Libraries can help you with your projects, papers and research.  We’re proud that our friends at SMU’s Office of Information Technology will join us again to share information about their services.

The Cookout will be located in its usual spot on the west side of Fondren Library Center. We’ll have free all-beef dogs, veggie dogs, popcorn, cookies, and refreshments while supplies last.

Planned to coincide with National Library Week, this is a great opportunity for CUL to show its appreciation to the SMU community & for students, faculty & staff to learn more about library services.
