The coffee and donuts at Cool Tools days (along with the gifts for the speakers we have come in) don’t pay for themselves. Shocking, I know. Supporting SLAIS Research Day is another part of our mandate that takes cash. So, to raise some money, we’re joining up with the SLAIS Librarians Without Borders student group for a trivia night fundraiser. (I’m unsure which group is responsible for the punny title. Perhaps that will be a trivia question?)

Who: SLAIS students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members
What: Trivia Pub Night: Form teams of 2-4 to compete for a round of beverages
When: Wednesday, March 9, 5:30 – 7:30pm
Where: Koerner’s Pub, in the basement of the Graduate Student Centre at UBC
Why: A fundraiser for SLAIS student groups ASIS&T and LWB
How: Pre-register your team to guarantee a table by emailing Heidi at, or just show up at the door!
Cost: $20 suggested minimum donation per team (cash only please)

For more information, email Heidi at
