Senior Research Scientist Lynn Silipigni Connaway to Present NASIG Webinar from 3-4 PM ET on 14 May 2013

 

In this webinar, Dr. Lynn Silipigni Connaway will discuss the common themes and findings of multiple US and UK user behavior studies to help librarians make informed decisions. The title of her presentation is “Working Outside of the Library: ‘With Google you are not limited. You have as much as you can pull up.’”

Researchers and students expect seamless access to full-text sources and are confident in their own ability to find and use information. The ways people acquire information are changing from national to global, linear to linked and print to digital. However, being able to critically evaluate and select information is much more difficult than being able to find information that will satisfice the need; therefore, creating an opportunity for education and support. Librarians need to develop new ways of providing services and systems to meet the needs of library users and to attract library non-users.

Webinar registration closes on Monday, 13 May and costs $35 for NASIG members, $50 for non-members and $95 group participants. See the NASIG webinar page for complete details.
