Collaboration zone

Library event provides unique opportunity for faculty-student interaction

The normally quiet HLS Library Reading Room became a collaboration zone for students and faculty during the recent “Notes & Comment” event where students seeking guidance on their research and writing for publication had the opportunity to meet individually and in small groups with faculty members and librarians.

This is the third time the library has hosted the event. The idea for the gathering came from Professor Jonathan Zittrain, the George Bemis Professor of International Law and Vice Dean for Library and Information Resources, who saw it as a way to create new student-faculty interactions and to reinforce the library’s position as the home of scholarship on campus.
