Claire Wiley, associate professor and research and instruction librarian, served as a panelist on a program titled “Conducting and Supporting Research Synthesis: Librarian Roles, Competencies, and Collaborations” which took place during the American Library Association’s Annual Conference last month.

This panel session discussed research synthesis methods, including systematic and scoping reviews, highlighting the role of librarians in supporting researchers as well as how these methods can be used to enhance research in the field of Library and Information Science. Co-panelists on this program included librarians from the U.S. Naval Academy, Colorado State University, Louisiana State University, University of Michigan, University of Calgary and University of Minnesota.
