Nov: Business Faculty Use and Perception of Research Resources (ACRL-CHOICE)

Weds, Nov 12 / 11am-12pm PT / 2-3pm ET

In an ACRL/Choice webinar last year ProQuest shared the results of a large survey of business faculty into the types of non-journal information they use when conducting research. Join us at 2:00pm ET on 12 November when we will share the findings of a follow-up survey conducted in May 2014. In this lengthier survey business faculty responded to questions about their research behaviors and experiences using resources such as the library website, databases and Google Scholar; what kinds of information they expect students to use for completing course work; and their use of data sets.
