C305 – Rethinking & Retooling Academic Research
3:45 PM – 4:30 PM
Crystal Renfro, Faculty Engagement Librarian, Georgia Institute of Technology
Mary Axford, Faculty Engagement Librarian, Georgia Institute of Technology
One of the issues the increasingly digital academy faces is that students are not able to successfully find relevant resources because they do not “understand the language of academic research” or are not familiar with the topic and field of their research. Renfro and Axford, authors of www.academicpkm.org, outline several new programs at the Georgia Tech Library, including the popular blog series, A Year to Improved Productivity for Librarians and Academic Researchers, which connects librarians with the academic community in new and vital ways.
