New researcher-in-residence is rethinking Concordia Library as a sensory experience

Young woman, smiling, with red lipstick, long dark hair, and a blue suit jacket.Katherine McLeod: “The library is a generative space of learning.”

What does it mean to listen to the library? What types of sounds are held within its collections?

These are two of the questions Katherine McLeod will investigate as the latest participant in the Concordia Library researcher-in-residence program. Now in its fourth year, the program supports the library’s efforts to foster a strong research culture and promote evidence-based librarianship.

McLeod is an affiliate assistant professor in Concordia’s Department of English and a researcher with the multi-institution partnership of SpokenWeb. She produces monthly audio content for its ShortCuts series on the SpokenWeb podcast feed.
