Courses are created in an attempt to help Library Science students at UFRGS


In the last few weeks, more than 400 municipalities in the state of Rio Grande do Sul had entire neighborhoods damaged by the rain, making it the biggest climate tragedy in the state’s history, affecting more than 2 million people. On May 1, the government declared a state of public calamity.
