About the Symposium

Bridging the Spectrum: A Symposium on Scholarship and Practice in Library and Information Science offers a knowledge-sharing forum and meeting place for practitioners, students, and faculty in Library and Information Sciences and Services. Presentations are selected to showcase innovative practices, projects, and research activities in a variety of library, archives, or information services activities. Because students, faculty, and practitioners all share their work, the Symposium encompasses many different aspects and points of view on Library and Information Professional work. The program's goal is to foster unexpected connections across the spectrum of the information professions

We encourage attendees to use Metro if possible. The Pryzbyla Center is a short walk from the Brookland Metro stop. If you are driving, you may park in the law school garage (see photo), located at 3600 John McCormack Dr., NE. In the garage you will see signs pointing you to the elevator which will take you to the walkway in front of the Pryzbyla Center.
