Faculty Pub Night @ the Library

Faculty Pub Night is a library-sponsored speaker series launched in 2010. It is designed to highlight a diverse, interdisciplinary range of research publications and creative works created by faculty at Loyola Marymount University and Loyola Law School, presented to a broad audience that includes students, faculty, staff, and off-campus guests.

Speakers are selected by an internal committee of librarians and library staff and approved by the Dean of the Library. The committee responsible for developing the series strives to select an annual line-up of faculty (four each semester) with diverse and inclusive representation across schools and colleges, academic departments and programs. The call for proposals for next year's series will go out in February/March.

Faculty Pub Night is open to everyone and students are especially encouraged to attend. To learn more about this year's speakers and attending Faculty Pub Night, go to our Library Events page. Previous speakers and their presentations (when available) are archived in LMU Digital Commons.

If you have any questions about the series or the application/evaluation process, please contact John Jackson, Head of Outreach & Communications for the William H. Hannon Library.
