Workshop Your Question & Define Your Info Need

Workshop Your Question & Define Your Info Need

Are you asking a lot of questions but not always getting the right answers? How you phrase your information need has a direct impact on the results you get, whether you are searching a database or communicating with a colleague.

As a complement to our Creating Effective Research Questions session, we are offering this unstructured, open chat where health care professionals can bring their information needs and get feedback on how to best articulate what they are looking for. Attendees are encouraged to bring a current need, question and/or key concept in any stage of development for live feedback from a library and information professional and their peers. 

Recommended for: Health care professionals looking for help with clarifing and/or improving their information seeking processes related to formal research or local knowledge projects (reports, policies, education, etc.).
