Librarians supporting applied research and discipline-specific researchers
Thursday, March 13th, 2014 at 9:00AM – 10:00AM
Location: RM 240A (604-822-8677), IK Barber Learning Centre-Staff Board Rooms, Point Grey Campus
Description: This webinar will explore how librarians are supporting researchers in applied and discipline-specific areas. Presenters will include three chemistry professionals, two who have gone into library sciences supporting fellow researchers and one who has pursued a distinguished research career in chemistry. They will examine whether researchers’ needs vary with their involvement in applied versus basic research, and examine the impact on the librarian’s skill set and tools. Other key themes include how important is it for a librarian to have an educational background in the disciplines they support, and how do they stay up-to-date in their field?
