The University of Illinois Library showed the campus the research it does at its recent 2014 Library Research Showcase (Couldn’t make it? Posters and videos of lightning talks are archived in IDEALS!). That was just a peek into the world of research achievements here, and the rest of the fall saw library faculty and academic professionals traveling the world presenting on a wide range of topics. These presentations included research, and librarian-led workshops that let others benefit from the work we do at Illinois. Below you’ll find some of the places we’ve been to help shape the future of libraries!
The University Library invites the campus community and friends of the library to its Second Annual Library Research Showcase from 12:30-4PM on Wednesday, November 12, 2014.

At the Showcase, you’ll find posters, tech demos, and lightning talks on digital humanities, the ethics of archives, information seeking behaviors, preservation both digital and analog, data, and more.
