As academia splinters into ever more specialized fields of inquiry, access to broad bodies of knowledge has never been greater. How can today’s liaison librarian add value to the interdisciplinary research of the faculty they serve? Jeff Knapp, the Larry & Ellen Foster Librarian for Communications at Penn State, will discuss some history of the interdisciplinary research movement, and the ways librarians’ expertise can improve interdisciplinary scholarship.
