Scott Collard to speak at first meeting

Scott Collard, the Social Sciences Collections Coordinator and Graduate Student Services Coordinator at New York University, will speak about how NYU supports graduate research. Mr. Collard received his MSLIS from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and an MA in General Studies in the Humanities (Early American History and Literature) from the University of Chicago.

Besides graduate outreach, Scott administers the library’s virtual reference services and is the liaison to the Education and Linguistics programs. A member of the Association of College and Research Libraries, Mr. Collard chairs the Membership and Orientation Committee of the Educational and Behavioral Sciences Section. His research interests focus on the graduate student service and space design; the intersection between technology and research services; and user-centered design and customizability.

This meeting is being co-sponsored by the Bibliographic Instruction Special Interest Group of the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO). It will be held at the METRO offices, 57 East 11th Street, 4th floor in Manhattan on November 9th from 10 am to noon.
