SLA Sci-Tech Division: From Literature Searching to Literature Analysis: How to Create Insight with Search Results - WEBINAR
When: Tuesday, April 29, 2014, 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
Go beyond literature searching by providing your customers with analysis. Deborah Keller offers four ways to analyze database search results to give added value to the information. She suggests research questions that can be asked and answered, and recommends new information products—written reports, graphs, and visualizations--that information professionals can develop with standard or free software and offer to customers. Increase your analytical skills and boost your value within your organization by looking at and presenting the information that you already have in new ways. This webinar will give you the tools to begin using these techniques yourself.
