Registration is open for the 6th Biennial Kathleen A. Zar Symposium at the University of Chicago Library on Friday, September 6.
“High Impact Collaboration: Libraries and Undergraduate Research Partnerships”

Undergraduate research is a growing focus of higher education, as colleges and universities seek ways to involve students in experimental learning outside the classroom. Research experiences allow students to participate in knowledge creation, develop disciplinary skills, make impactful connections with faculty, and contribute to scholarly conversations. Substantive research opportunities have a lasting impact beyond graduation, inspiring careers and lifelong learning. As campuses identify new ways to support student research, what role can academic libraries play in these efforts? This symposium will explore different ways that librarians, faculty, and administrators can collaborate to help undergraduates engage and succeed in meaningful research experiences during their college years.

Our keynote speaker is Doreen Bradley, Director of Learning Programs and Initiatives at the University of Michigan Library.
