The Knowledge Gap Between Librarians and Students

The Knowledge Gap Between Librarians and Students: Contrasting Perspectives on the Undergraduate Workflow

Our second Librarian Futures report comprises the findings of several research projects on contrasting librarian and student perspectives. As the digital age continues to revolutionize the way we learn, it is essential that academic libraries keep pace with these changes. As the findings of our Librarian Futures reports show, there is still much work to be done to ensure that academic libraries meet the evolving needs of students in the 21st century.

In this webinar, Matthew Weldon, Library Patron Consultant at Technology from Sage, Matt Hayes, Managing Director at Technology from Sage, and Samantha Sharman, Classical Studies BA (hons) Graduate at University of Lincoln discussed:

  • The key findings of the report, with a focus on the discovery process, technical and academic literacies, student training, and engagement
  • Perspectives on the changing needs and expectations of students who are currently navigating the academic landscape
  • How academic libraries can re-evaluate their role in the student experience and reimagine how to best serve the students of tomorrow,
  • How academic libraries can redefine their role in student engagement through adopting new technologies to support the learning journey
  • How the findings are influencing Technology from Sage’s library technologies
