Link updated: Documentary film series
The University of Tennessee Libraries is hosting a new viewing, reading and discussion series titled “Research Revolution: Science and the Shaping of Modern Life." Participants will view outstanding documentary films and discuss the impact of research-based science and technological “progress” on everyday life.

The University of Tennessee Libraries has been selected to participate in this project organized by National Video Resources (NVR), the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office and funded by
a grant from the National Science Foundation. The Knoxville series is presented in partnership with the Knox County Public Library System and the Preston Medical Library.

Dr. Mark Littmann, Chair of Excellence in Science, Technology and Medical Writing, will lead a discussion of each session’s award winning documentary.

Dr. Littman directs the Science Communication Program and teaches
science writing and other courses for the School of Journalism. Dr. Littman’s most recent books are The Heavens on Fire: The Great Leonid Meteor Storms and Totality: Eclipses of the Sun.

The first program will be held on January 27, 2004 at 7:00 PM at the
Pendergrass Agriculture Veterinary Medicine Library (Knoxville).

For more information call Troy Davis, at 865-974-6396 or email troydavis@utk.edu.
