Thank you for your interest in the OCLC Research Briefing at UNC Chapel Hill on Friday, 7 June 2013. The agenda is as follows:

  • 9:00-10:00 a.m. - Shifts in Scholarly Attention Among World Regions
    Dr. Charles Kurzman, Professor of Sociology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill will present his research on changing academic attention to world regions over the past 50 years; “attention” as measured by analyzing works published about each region of the world and collected in U.S. academic libraries for each year of publication since 1958. The patterns that emerge from this research will help to inform social scientists and educational policymakers about trends and possible gaps in scholarly attention to different regions of the world.
  • 10:00-11:00 a.m. - Break
  • 11:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. - Why Google?: "…[Google] saved time, it saved gas, I got what I needed, and it wasn't a big deal."
    Dr. Lynn Silipigni Connaway will present the results of multiple user behavior studies and recommendations for promoting user engagement with library services, sources, and systems.
