About the Symposium

6th Biennial Kathleen A. Zar Symposium

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.
