Give the Unexpected: The Gift of Your Research

With the holiday season fast approaching, information professionals everywhere are busy making lists, trying to ensure they give the right gift to each person. Here’s a gift idea that is guaranteed to surprise and delight—the gift of your research, presented in person at SLA 2014 in beautiful Vancouver.

Each year, as many as a dozen information professionals present research papers at dedicated conference sessions. The papers touch on nearly all aspects of library and information services. At SLA 2013, for example, paper topics included (1) how to determine the library characteristics that correlate most closely with the parent organization’s profitability and (2) how to identify the premier database in a research-intensive field of study. Ultimately, a case study of using personal observation to conduct a knowledge audit was honored as the best paper presented at the conference.

These “contributed paper” sessions are the best-kept secrets at annual conferences, so make plans now to give the gift of your research and knowledge to your colleagues and peers at SLA 2014. But hurry—there are only three weeks left to submit your proposal. For more information about the papers, click here or contact Stacey Greenwell.

Any large business structure consists of several units, and local teams are formed in each department who are competing with each other. Spy app can play a key role in this struggle.
