27.6.11 & 28.6.11: Day One & Two of the McNair ISI

Posted in General issues |

Today was the first day of the McNair International Summer Institute (ISI) at the University of East London. The session started with welcoming remarks from Professor John Storan, director of Continuum and co-director of the International Summer Institute. He led us on a tour of the UEL campus and talked with us about the UEL history and its connection to the community of East London.

One of the first presentations provided us with an overview of the English educational system. The UEL library staff followed with the next presentation. They provided an introduction of the resources and databases best suited for each of the scholars. After lunch the scholars went back to the library to collect articles for their research projects.
