contain decorated initials, and nine pages have large historiated initials enclosed by
floral borders. Annotations include full liturgical information, translation of rubrics,
and musical and liturgical comparisons with the Liber Usualis. To see the gradual, click

Gender and Computing Maria Klawe, President, Harvey Mudd College
Thursday, Nov. 29, 4:15 PM . Founders Room, Honnold/Mudd Library The computer is the
quotidian, ubiquitous machine that defines our age, and yet there are many fewer women

be preventing young women from entering and benefiting this field? President Maria Klawe
will discuss the history, reasons for, and possible ways to change this major gender imbalance.
