Library Research Seminar V (LRS-V) will bring together a diverse community of scholars from academia and practitioners from libraries and archives who are interested in research that informs policy-making, decision-making, and best practices.


The primary goals for LRS-V are:


  • Stimulate and inspire scholars, educators, students, and practitioners to include topics of critical importance to libraries and archives as part of their research agendas.

  • Forge stronger connections among members of the research community and practitioners who are interested in scholarship, innovation, and evaluation.

  • Broaden research activities to include the needs of diverse populations, build a diverse workforce, and increase diversity in the pool of individuals involved in research projects.
