Congratulations to the winner of this year's Symposium Survey Amazon Gift Card, Bobray Bordelon (Princeton University)!  And thank you to all Symposium attendees and participants who filled out a survey with comments and suggestions to help us continue to improve this event. We appreciate your feedback!

The 7th Annual Columbia University Libraries Reference Services Symposium, “The Making of a Reference Librarian”, will explore the education and skills needed, such as statistical and technological literacy, to meet the growing demands of researchers.

The Columbia University Libraries Reference Symposia seek to bring together reference librarians, heads of reference departments, and public service managers from large research libraries in the Northeast to share ideas, concerns and plans about reference services.
