Research Support at Taylor: Pilot Project
Consider whether the following pose challenges to your research group:
Are you working in an interdisciplinary area that is new to you, and that you want to learn more about?
- Do you need a way to share and manage the results of your literature search?
Are you preparing a literature review for a grant application?
Do you want to know the impact of your research?
Are you interested in establishing a virtual research environment?
With the increase in interdisciplinary research, graduate students, and research funding at Western, Taylor Library has launched a new pilot project to ensure researchers are receiving the support they need. Librarians Lise Doucette and Kim Cornell are heading the project and have been collaborating with faculty members and graduate students to better understand their needs. Through a series of meetings and interviews we are learning more about how researchers find information (articles, data, patents, chemical properties), and then how they organize, analyze, and share it with others. We can then determine how the library can help researchers use information most effectively and efficiently. By participating in this pilot project, your input will help shape the development of new or enhanced information services offered to your research group.
We are still very interested in hearing from other researchers or research groups who are interested in participating in this pilot project. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact Lise Doucette to discuss your needs so that we can determine how the library can work with your research group. Taylor Library’s ultimate goal is to enhance your research process and output through efficiencies gained in the information gathering and sharing process.
