Collaboration drives much research in libraries, and Fall 2014 publications by University of Illinois Library Faculty and Academic Professionals demonstrate the power of a good research partner whether at the same institution or elsewhere. The librarians listed below (see names in bold) published alongside researchers across the Illinois campus but also the country: they dug into questions regarding musicology research, information and digital literacies, and more. Even better? You can check out the fruits of these efforts via links to open access full text versions of articles on the publisher website or in IDEALS where available.
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. A welcome and opening remarks by Dean of Libraries John Wilkin will precede the lightning talks.
