The 2017 Biennial Conference of the Association of College & Research Libraries will include presentations by University of Illinois Library faculty on topics including digital scholarship, data mining, information literacy, digital humanities and more.
As the fall semester comes to a close, we look back upon the achievements of our library faculty and academic professionals from the summer and fall. U of I researchers have traveled around the globe, collaborating with other Illinois community members and other scholars worldwide to advance research in their fields. From poster presentations to keynote speeches and round table discussions, we commend our researchers for their excellent contributions to the U of I and to Library and Information Science and other disciplines. A bibliography of these select presentations can be found below.
