This medallion is located on the center of the desk in the Science & Business reading room.

To see what else you might find Inside Adams there are two activities we encourage you to take advantage of when you are in Washington, D.C.

First, there is a monthly tour of the Science & Business Reading Room at 11 am on the first Wednesday of the month. Business and Science staff will show researchers around the reading room and point out specifics in the Reference collections for both Business and Science.

Also, just after the tour, the Business Reference staff does a Business Research Orientation at 12 noon, where we cover some basic information about doing research at the Library as well as review databases, research strategies, and sources specific to business research.

You are welcome to attend one or both of these events. Both meet in the elevator bay on the 5th Floor of the Adams Building. You can just show up, but we encourage you to sign up on-line in advance for the tour and/or the Business Research Orientation.

Note: We do recommend that you get your reader registration card ahead of time.

The next tour & orientation takes place on Wednesday, February 3rd – come join us.
