Findability – A New Academic Challenge
Good research makes an impact. New technologies offer academics exciting possibilities for online publishing, data sharing, and research dissemination. However, the blizzard of digital tools and resources can be overwhelming. Librarians are skilled information managers and navigators; we know how to find information and how to improve its findability. I will share how our librarians are helping faculty and graduates to make their research findable through search engine optimization, digital archiving, online portfolio development, and social media. Finders know findability.
