On Wednesday, April 11, from 3-5pm, the normally quiet* tables of the HLS Library Reading Room will become collaboration zones for student-faculty interaction on scholarly topics during Notes & Comment: An Event for Students and Faculty to Connect on Scholarship. Faculty will be available to meet with students seeking guidance on their research and writing for publication — including student Notes in HLS journals, writing competitions, and other extra-curricular publishing opportunities.
During the event, students will be matched with faculty individually or in small groups. “It’s sort of a collective office hours, where a referral from one faculty member to another can be as simple as walking two tables down in the Reading Room,” said Jonathan Zittrain, Vice Dean for Library and Information Resources in his invitation to faculty.
We have already received commitments to attend from Professors Bavitz, Bayefsky, Block, Desan, Lazarus, Singer, Tobin, Yang, and Zittrain.
A networking reception with food and drink will also be available throughout the event and Library staff will be on hand to showcase resources for research and scholarly publishing available to faculty and students.
Participants should RSVP so that the event coordinators can work to plan appropriate student-faculty partnerships in advance.
*Note that students looking for quiet study space during the event will be directed to the Reference Room.
