Episode 89

Big academic publishers are trying to turn big data on researchers and the research life-cycle into big money. Karen Phillips talks through SAGE’s priorities regarding data (hint: it’s not about collecting reams and reams of it) and how user behavior is making discovery services feel a bit old fashioned. Johan touches on how researchers are interacting with materials on mobile devices, and Richard outlines how those changing user behaviors are impacting Penn’s interactions with the library’s users.
