Attendee comments from the most recent U of T iSchool Symposium:

  • Good mix of theory & practice, concepts & examples & time to discuss & ask questions; variety was great; good pace
  • Nice to see the use of Skype, I’ve never seen that in a symposium
  • Do it again!
  • Got more relevant information than at other conferences
  • It was great! Learned a lot & got some ideas for my library.
  • Most useful having actual examples of what is working for libraries
  • Loved the venue
