Peer-reviewed journals are still essential for research and teaching, but the mix of content used by faculty and students is expanding to include dissertations, ebooks, video and much more. But why are researchers and students choosing the content they do, and how can libraries keep up? Attend this session, and learn the results of a global survey by ProQuest that provides insights on:
• The types of content used by students and faculty in their research, teaching and learning
• What content types faculty recommend to students – and what the students actually use
• Why lecturers want their students to use wide array of content types in their research
You’ll also get a first look at ProQuest One Academic, the new ProQuest product launching just days before OLA. ProQuest One Academic brings four core multi-disciplinary products – ProQuest Central, Academic Complete, Academic Video Online and ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global – together onto the ProQuest platform, where users can cross-search them alongside other ProQuest content resources. Attendees will receive a free copy of the whitepaper, while supplies last.
