Lunchtime Lecture Series: Do Librarians Do It Better? LIS Students' Information Behaviors

When: Tuesday, November 4, 2014, 12:00-12:50pm
Where: Palace Road Building, P-207

Presented by Assistant Professor Laura Saunders

One of the core service areas of libraries is to add value to users' information seeking and searching through the use of sophisticated search strategies and in-depth knowledge of resources. Presumably, LIS programs are preparing students for that role by teaching them those advanced strategies and introducing them to resources beyond Google and Wikipedia. But what information behaviors do LIS students display when conducting their own research for course-related assignments? This session looks at the information literacy and information behaviors of LIS students from 18 countries to see how their behaviors compare to other populations, and to examine cross-country similarities and differences. Come find out how you compare!
