LFPL's MyLibraryU Short Courses are taught like real college courses by professors and experts in their fields. Some require reading and encourage field trips. All are free and open to anyone with no academic background required.

In this course, Dr. Maegen Rochner, Assistant Professor of Geographic and Environmental Sciences at the University of Louisville, will introduce the basics of dendrochronology, the tools of the trade, and outline some of the foundational principles of tree-ring investigations, including the dating of archaeological timbers, analysis of extreme weather events, and the influence of human impacts on tree growth.

This program is free and open to the public, but registration is requested; call (502) 574-1623 or register online.
