Twenty-first century librarianship has witnessed new forms of cooperation between librarians and the communities they serve. This conference will bring together academics and practitioners, including faculty and graduate students from library schools and iSchools, and academic, public and school librarians. The conference will focus on how collaboration and cross-disciplinary research can create new knowledge and chart a course for partnerships with deep and lasting impact.

The LRS VI Program Planning Committee invites proposals for papers, panels, posters and workshops. We welcome creative contributions from individuals and groups in the following theme areas.

Example themes include, but are not limited to:

    Cutting-edge research that crosses boundaries within and beyond the field of library and information science
    The process and products of collaboration: lessons learned and best practices that establish librarians as full research, teaching, and learning partners in academic or community settings
    Librarian-faculty partnerships, their impact on research, and the influence of their findings on the collaborative approach
    Identification of knowledge gaps and research agendas
    Intra-institutional, inter-institutional and trans-national collaborations
    Community engagement and community informatics projects--stories of success and possible scenarios for the future
    Examples of recruiting, training, and mentoring the next generation of librarians to be genuine research, teaching, and learning partners in their campus and communities
