Tours to Harvard Law school library and Harvard-Yenching Library on March 17th

Dear colleagues,

Thanks to Sharon Yang and Nongji Zhang’s coordination, now we have all the detailed schedule of the library tours on March 17th.

Because the libraries can’t provide tours to all attendees at once, we have to stagger the sessions. While no registration is necessary, please choose sessions that best fit your schedule.

Please remember to bring your valid photo ID with you for the tours.  And it is a 6 minute walk between the two libraries (map attached at the end).
