September 3, 2014 (All day) to September 4, 2014 (All day)
The meeting is in the Instructional Classroom. There are two entrances to Green Library. You want the east entrance "near the red fountain". We'll have someone near the entrance to guide you past the portal monitor and to the meeting room. There is a coffee shop outside the library entrance if you've not gotten breakfast near your hotel.

This meeting is fully booked.
