Description

As the use of “grey literature” becomes more accepted as a legitimate means of informing the implementation of timely research, librarians may become information resources much needed by grant writers, researchers, policy makers and innovative non-profits. Accessibility and timing are at issue for many change makers in a time where innovation and action are needed ahead of the constraints of academic research. This session will introduce ways in which organizational assessments may be quickly translated into real-time research which informs action. Real-world experiences in libraries and non-profits, accessible methodologies and resources for finding and citing non-traditional research will be presented.
