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.
