Program Agenda 

The Second Annual Symposium, “Bridging the Spectrum:  A Symposium on Scholarship and Practice in Library and Information Science,” offers a knowledge-sharing forum and meeting place for practitioners, students, and faculty in Library and Information Sciences and Services.

Presentations are selected to showcase innovative practices, projects, and research activities in a variety of library, archives, or information services activities. Because students, faculty, and practitioners all share their work, the Symposium encompasses many different aspects and points of view on Library and Information Professional work. The program’s goal is to foster unexpected connections across the spectrum of the information professions.

The Symposium will include two types of sessions: briefings, and posters. Briefings will be 15-minute descriptions of an innovative practice, project, or research activity. There will be morning and afternoon briefing sessions.

Posters will be exhibits describing a practice, project, or research activity. Posters will be viewable throughout the day, and there will be a poster session during which  presenters will discuss their work with attendees.
