Researchers – give your views on the management of online research

In collaboration with the UX project at Loughborough University, Taylor & Francis are hosting a Twitter party to learn more about the views of librarians and researchers on the management of online research.

Discovering and navigating digital information is part of the everyday work of researchers, but with such a wide range of resources available online, how are researchers identifying relevant information, annotating and saving it for reference purposes?

The UX project is a collaborative user experience project between the University and Taylor & Francis. It explores how researchers source accurate information with so many resources available online and aims to understand on how this can be enhanced.

As part of this project, Taylor & Frances are hosting a Twitter party providing the opportunity to discuss how research has changed and how individuals can work together to enhance the research experience. 

The event will take place on Wednesday 16 March at 2.30pm. Every tweeter in attendance will be entered into a prize draw to win one of four Amazon vouchers however, they must be registered beforehand.

The hashtag for the event is #Rd2research hosted on the Library Lantern Twitter account.

Information about the event and how to join the party can be found here.
