Nancy Fried Foster and Cornell University Library’s Korneila Tancheva will discuss “Research Practices and the Disruption of the Research Library” at the RLUK Conference on Thursday, March 10.

The academic research library has always played a crucial role in building collections and services to support research. Current technological, regulatory and research behaviour disruptions present new opportunities in and challenges to the ways in which research is produced, shared, preserved, and archived for future generations. In order to envision a new research library based on current and emerging work practices, librarians at Cornell University investigated the daily work practices of academic researchers—especially how they acquire, use and share information. Our presentation will review findings and share “disrupted” models of the research library.

Where: The British Library, London

When: Thursday, March 10, 10-10:30 am
