Workshop Your Info Needs & Questions

Workshop Your Info Needs & Questions

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. Join a librarian and your colleagues for this unstructured, open chat where health care professionals, analysts and researchers can bring their information needs and get feedback on how to best articulate what you are looking for. Attendees are encouraged to bring a current need, question and/or key concept in any stage of development for live feedback.

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