Showcase of Librarian Research and Practice at Rutherford Library

No comments :
Librarians at the University of Alberta Libraries are active practitioners who through the course of their work often develop new and interesting methods and start new initiatives that are widely recognized. To share some of this great work, the Libraries is hosting an exhibit of librarian conference posters from the past two years at the Rutherford Library from January 15-29th. These posters showcase the variety of knowledge University of Alberta librarians have to share, from original research-generated contributions to lessons learned through practice and project-based innovation.

The exhibit includes posters that were displayed at conferences such as: The International Academy of Nursing Editors Annual Conference, 8th International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference, Open Repositories 2015 and the Art Libraries Society of North America Annual Conference, to name just a few. You can see the full list of posters and authors at the bottom of this post.

Please do take the time to wander through Rutherford Galleria sometime in the next two weeks to view this work. These posters show our librarians' commitment to sharing their knowledge with the greater community.
