Studying the Past in a 21st Century Research Library

Friday, March 1, 2013, 11 am - 1 pm

Description:
The 21st century research library extends beyond its physical walls. This workshop will give an overview of the reference services available in today's research library and how technology and the digital environment have impacted the way students and scholars navigate information in their research efforts.  We will provide examples of a number of the innovative services and tools that the Libraries employ to enhance the research process, including 24/7 reference services, screen sharing, and QR codes.

Secondly, we will demonstrate the variety of digitized historical resources available to students and lifelong learners.  Attendees will have the opportunity to explore newspapers, magazines, texts, diaries, and letters from the 18th through the 20th centuries. We will also show publicly available websites that document the history of the United States.

Cynthia A. Johnson, Head of Reference Services
