As a companion to our previous post featuring U of I Library Presentations, we present publications by our Library Faculty and Academic Professionals from summer and fall 2016. Read on for the newest research and developments in library management, information seeking behavior, digital collections metadata, library evaluation, and more. Congratulations to all those who published their work!
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.
