How do very young children view their world? Does a three-year old in Kenya interact with her family in the same way as a three-year old in Finland? Does the small child of working-class parents in Greensboro have more in common with middle-class children in Greensboro or with working-class children in Korea and Estonia? Dr. Jonathan Tudge, a professor of human development, has spent over 20 years researching the everyday life of pre-school age children around the world, and his study included many Greensboro families. Join us for an evening with Professor Tudge as he delves into "The Everyday Life of Children."

Data Services and Government Information Librarian Lynda Kellam at UNCG's University Libraries has been selected to participate in the 2010 Class of Emerging Leaders of the American Library Association. Her participation will be sponsored by the Government Documents Round Table of the Association (GODORT)
The ALA Emerging Leaders program is a leadership development program which enables newer library workers from across the country to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, gain an inside look into ALA structure, and have an opportunity to serve the profession in a leadership capacity. It puts participants on the fast track to ALA committee volunteerism as well as other professional library-related organizations.
Lynda is UNCG's second participant in this selective program. Cello Music Cataloger Mac Nelson was named in 2007.
