Concordia University Libraries Research Forum - Call for Submissions

Concordia University Libraries will hold its annual Library Research Forum on Friday, April 26, 2013 at the Loyola Jesuit Hall and Conference Centre. Proposals are welcome for presentations or posters on research in any area of Library and Information Science. Danuta A. Nitecki, Dean of Libraries at Drexel University and Professor in the Drexel iSchool, will be the keynote speaker. The Forum will begin at 9:30 am and conclude at 3:00 pm. Registration is free and includes a light breakfast and lunch.

For over a decade, Concordia’s Library Research Forum has provided librarians, archivists, teaching faculty, graduate students, and information professionals with an opportunity to describe and promote their completed or in-progress research, to seek suggestions for enhancing their research interests, to identify potential new partners for projects, to test the effectiveness of their undertakings, and to promote research activities within academic libraries.

The Forum is also designed to showcase a diversity of interests with a goal of highlighting and celebrating the process of research. In previous years presentations have explored information literacy instruction, social media, library history, citation analysis methods, scholarly publishing, services to users with disabilities, new library technologies, resource sharing, and reference service models and innovations. Presentations and posters may be in English or French.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 22, 2013.
