Interested in youth services? Come on out to the 2019 iYouth Conference: Departures & Disruptions!
This year, the iYouth Conference will highlight the incredible work of local librarians and LIS students who are making meaningful change in their communities. Whether by departing from traditional methods/ideas of librarianship or disrupting current systems that aren’t working for the communities they serve, there are incredible change-makers in our libraries working to make them better for children, youth, and teens.
Hear from local public librarians, school librarians, students, and a local author! Enjoy free food at an afternoon reception and take home advance reading copies of upcoming titles!
REGISTRATION IS FREE AND NOW OPEN: bit.ly/iyouth2019registration

The High Performance Computing Club (HPCC) at the University of Washington is dedicated to helping students get free access to computing resources. There are three main avenues in which we facilitate this:
- On-Campus Resources – HPCC has purchases several hundred thousand dollars worth of computing equipment on behalf of all students. These compute nodes are part of the university wide compute cluster call Hyak. We train students on the basics of how to use this system, and grant access to our allocation of the cluster.
- Cloud Resources – HPCC is also the steward of a substantial grant of funding cloud computing projects. If you are interested in using the major cloud providers in your research, we have quarterly grant cycles to provide funding for these projects. Our current cycle is open, please visit (http://students.wa shington.edu/hpcc/cloud-credits/)
- Mentorship Program – We have a quarterly mentorship program which pairs graduate students with undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing computational research. (http://students.washington.edu/hpcc/mentorship-program/)
More information about to get access to these great resources is available on our website. (http://students.washington.edu/hpcc/)
