Instructional Resource Center Open House: March 7 – 9, 2017

The Instructional Resource Center at Union Presbyterian Seminary’s Library is excited to invite you to our Spring Open House for local church leaders and seminarians on March 7 – 9 from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The staff will offer a variety of short demo classes (15 minutes) to whet your appetite for resources for ministry and that schedule of classes is listed below. We are NOT requiring registration, so just drop in when your schedule allows. And if you don’t want to participate in a demo class, just come visit with the staff who will be available to answer your questions about curriculum, digital learning, new ideas or the rich resources of the  entire theological library. The IRC is located on the second floor of William Morton Smith Library on the campus on Union Presbyterian Seminary (3401 Brook Road Richmond, VA 23227). (The Library backs up to Chamberlayne Avenue on the east end of the campus, and parking can be found on Melrose Avenue which borders the north side of campus.)  Classes will be in the Digital Learning Lab, Room 203.  Questions? Call (804) 278-4324.  Directions to our campus can be found here.
