Slide Scanner getting cleaned

We've sent our Nikon slide scanner off to be serviced and cleaned. We're not sure exactly when it will be back, but I'm hoping it will be back in the next two weeks or so by mid-June. Sorry for any inconvenience its absence may cause, but it's all being done in the name of cleaner, crisper images, so it'll be worth the wait!

We Do Not Exist

I think Jean Lee is in the lab more than I am, sometimes. She's been hard at work on her film, "We Do Not Exist," which explores the issue of sex trafficking -- what it is, who is involved and how it impacts our city. The film will be showing tonight in Fisher-Bennett 401 at 5pm, to be followed by a Q&A with Jean herself. Hope to see you there!

Happy Birthday, Janice

Today is lab consultant Janice Shiu's birthday! Wish her a happy birthday when you see her.
