Support for Research: Roles for Librarians

In her Keynote presentation this morning Ruth Holst spent most of her time discussing the evolving roles of hospital librarians. But in addition at the end of her presentation she discussed a recent study that provides food for thought on emerging roles available to librarians in the academic setting in support of research. The report written by “retired” librarians Susan Kroll and Rick Forsman  A Slice of Research Life: Information Support for Research in the United States is available on the OCLC website. The report looks at the “current use of tools and services that support all stages of  the research life cycle in institutions of higher education” in the United States. How can your library better meet the needs of researchers?
