Session Title

The Dynamic and Diverse Scholarly Information Landscape: What's Next?

Description

We believe that there have been recent fundamental changes in how faculty gather scholarly information, collaborate with others, and teach students. We created a faculty survey to discover how these trends are changing, how they affect access delivery, and how they might impact our teaching at a small liberal arts college. Considering these changes, are the tools we pay for and use in libraries still cost effective? If we believe scaffolding information literacy instruction is important, how should we bring students through our education systems and beyond? These are the kinds of questions we had about faculty research trends. We compared our results to three years of first-year student data on research preferences to see where favorites overlapped, or more importantly, where they diverged. In this session, we will share our findings, discuss the results, and ask for your input. How do we all work together to benefit from diverse research styles and techniques, and how might we use others’ perspectives to enhance our own research? Bring Your Own Device session.
