Episode 47

In this second of our four episodes about big data research, we continue our conversation by focusing on the library’s role with not only services and instruction, but how big data impacts collection practices and how it’s altering the relationships between libraries and vendors. Fundamentally, a library’s broader strategy for supporting big data research starts with the reference interview and grows from there.
