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.

Save-the-date! The 17th Annual Research Forum will take place on Friday, April 26, 2019 at the Loyola Jesuit Hall and Conference Centre, Loyola Campus, Concordia University.
