Striving for a painless route to online content: Reimagining the academic library for the student of tomorrow

September 7, 2023

How can researchers do their best work when they’re unable to get online? How can academic libraries meet the evolving needs of students in the 21st century? As the digital age continues to revolutionize the way we learn, it is essential that academic libraries keep pace with these changes and provide support for students to get access to resources. Two recently published reports highlight the current needs of students and researchers and recommend actions for academic libraries to further support the student learning journey. These reports are:

  • OpenAthens’ recent report, Library user experience: Removing barriers in the Search for Knowledge, based on worldwide research into users’ experiences of their academic libraries.
  • The findings of Technology from Sage’s second Librarian Futures report, The Knowledge Gap Between Librarians and Students, which comprises the findings of a research project contrasting librarian and student perspectives.

In this webinar we’ll hear from:

  • Richard French, Product Manager, OpenAthens
  • Matthew Weldon, Library Patron Consultant, Technology from Sage
  • Ian Snowley, Dean of Learning Skills and University Librarian, University of Lincoln
  • Second year student from the University of Lincoln

The recording of the webinar is now available to watch.
