Museum Mondays: Spring Conference 

 

Logan Museum staff members are busy on and off campus. This spring, all four of them are presenting or co-authoring papers or posters at professional meetings. These presentations expose Logan Museum activities to scholarly audiences and often lead to or spin off from publications. We’re also giving lots of public, non-technical presentations, too—most recently at the Byron (Illinois) Forest Preserve, Kenosha (Wisconsin) Public Museums, and at the Logan itself for the Society for Learning Unlimited and the Center for Learning in Retirement (Rock Valley College).
