Title: Beyond Library "Science" (part 1)
Author: Hudson, Dave; Fields, Erin
Abstract: In light of the increasing emphasis on librarians as scholars, this panel sought to draw attention to the limitations experienced by new professionals with humanities backgrounds who are operating in an LIS research environment dominated by (social) science methodologies and perspectives. As well as highlighting barriers created by invocations of "pragmatism" that align research support chiefly with quantifiable outcomes, the panel also hoped to deepen understanding of the value of critical humanities methods to the profession.
Description: This video captures part one of the panel. Presented on April 9, 2011 at the British Columbia Library Association's Annual Conference in Victoria, BC, the panel featured Dave Hudson, Learning and Curriculum Support Librarian at University of Guelph, and Erin Fields, Reference Librarian at University of British Columbia.
