Join Brie Betz, Director of Product Management at ProQuest, to hear new research and insights on how librarians perceive research databases in the wake of changing student and faculty content needs. New research by Library Journal and ProQuest – based on a survey of more than 600 academic librarians and faculty – sheds some light on:

  • The importance of having a variety of content (videos, ebooks, newspapers, etc.) available to users
  • Helping students evaluate accurate, reliable and trustworthy information sources
  • How libraries can evolve their collections to meet today’s academic needs
  • If only….! The types of resources librarians would create with their magic wands

You’ll hear what your fellow librarians have learned from their users, and how their insights may change the direction of your academic collection.
