The MALS and IDS Programs are thrilled to announce that the latest issue of the programs’ publication, Convergence, has been sent to the distribution services for printing! MALS/IDS students and alumni should anticipate the arrival of Convergence in their mailboxes within the next few weeks. Until then please browse the issue (here) on our blog. This quarter’s issue dedicates several articles to our programs’ most recent events and projects such as the 2013 AGLSP Conference, Vesna Lazar’s Practicum Reading and Presentation, and a guide to the DePaul Richardson Library’s newly renovated first floor–The Information Commons. A special thanks to our students, Derek and Ryan, whose profiles are also featured in this issue and the MALS/IDS Program staff who helped make this publication a success.
