Jim Hahn, Orientation Services and Environments Librarian and Associate Professor at the University Library, has received a Campus Research Board Award to fund his proposal, “Research and Development of an Intelligent Personalized Recommendation Platform for Library Accounts.” Funds will support undergraduate assistants who will help design front-end views for users of the resulting recommendation system.
This year’s showcase will feature presentations on research related to digital publishing, data management, assessment of print and digital collections, Medieval manuscripts, metadata and discovery systems, and the educational role of libraries, among other areas.
For more details and full schedule of presentations to be posted soon, see the Library Research Showcase website: http://go.illinois.edu/libraryshowcase
How do people use mobile devices for information seeking, and how can we best design library and information services for those who do so? How can we transform spaces and services to address the changing needs of library users? These themes are just two running through new publications by library faculty and academic professionals at the University of Illinois Library. Summer proved a productive season for new research, and in the list below you can get a hint of library contributions to these areas and others spread across diverse topics, from virtual poetry to invasive plant species to library and information science education.
Congratulations to the Illinois librarians and academic professionals publishing in Spring of 2015!
