It was three exciting days, showcasing the best in original thought and ideas at the University of the West Indies, Mona.
It is February and Research Days 2017 at UWI are on in earnest. As part of the sea of activity, the team at UWI Archives collaborated with the Department of Library and Information Studies (DLIS) to introduce the new Archives and Records Management (ARCM) programme offered by the department.
The Humanities courtyard was transformed into a plaza filled with research activities. Booths were staffed by UWI students from the department who were passionate about their research and ready to share.
Visitors to the booths were introduced to the various specializations in the department and the associated research. Many of them were prospective UWI students seeking entry into the UWI.
They participated in various activities which helped them understand aspects of the work and research within the department.
A cool gentle breeze swept over the courtyard and many of our visitors gleamed with a note of excitement, happy with the displays.
