      Jared Burton

      https://mtsac.libguides.com/culturama
      How is an unexpected discovery in a library like the improvisation of a jazz ensemble? Serendipity is a crucial, non-linear component of the creative process in both the arts and sciences, yet some warn it is a dying concept in a world filled with “smart” search algorithms and propaganda. Come learn how to cultivate and use serendipity for any art form with guided practice in the quiet book stacks of the Mt. SAC Library. Attendees will also be introduced to digital library collections and how to mindfully use them to enhance this increasingly important skill.
