9th Columbia University Libraries Symposium
“New Models of Academic Collaboration”
March 16th, 2012
Columbia University, Uris Hall

The theme for this year's symposium, “New Models of Academic Collaboration” will focus on how research libraries are discovering the value of collaboration among and within institutions.  As these collaborative models evolve, they foster new approaches to scholarship among faculty, students, library professionals, and institutions.  The symposium will address questions such as: What are these new models and approaches?  How are they being applied?  How can they be replicated or adapted?
