Library Research Forum

About the Research Forum

Since 2002, Concordia's Library Research Forum has provided librarians, archivists, graduate students, teaching faculty, and information professionals with an opportunity to describe and promote their completed or in-progress research, practical case studies or projects. The Forum also provides a venue for researchers to seek suggestions for enhancing their research interests, to identify potential new partners for projects, to test the effectiveness of their undertakings, and to promote research in academic libraries.

Registration for Concordia University Library’s Annual Research Forum is full.

Enter your information here to add your name to our waitlist. You will be contacted if a spot opens up.

Registration is free and includes a light breakfast and lunch.
