Navigating Research: How Academic Users Understand, Discover, and Utilize Reference Resources

Presented by: Oxford University Press & Library Journal
Event Date & Time: Thursday, August 31st, 2017, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM ET / 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM PT


How are reference resources used and perceived by academic librarians, faculty, and students? What is the role of reference in today’s academic institutions? How do users seek information and guidance as they conduct research?

Join us as we discuss the findings from Oxford University Press’s recently published white paper Navigating Research: How academic users understand, discover, and utilize reference resources. We’ll explain how research was conducted for this white paper, and then discuss some of the interesting findings that resulted from it.
