Library Research Seminar

The Library Research Seminar (LRS) brings together library practitioners, scholars, and students to share ideas and explore emerging research in the field of 21st century library and information science. It is a unique opportunity to gather with fellow professionals in a collegial setting to uncover new approaches for supporting evidence-based practice. LRS has occurred every 3-4 years since the late 1990s, and takes place at different locations each time. This page includes information about the most recent gatherings.
