Hot Topics Discussion Group (ACRL STS)
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, US/Pacific
"So Much Science, So Little Time." Most science librarians, no matter what their "home discipline," provide services to users with significantly different backgrounds and needs. This is particularly problematic in the STEM disciplines, where specialization does not translate well between fields. Join us for a brief discussion on the problems facing science librarians who need reasonable expertise in multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary settings. Afterwards, participants will have the chance to join subject roundtables and work with the guidance of a subject specialist to address some of the skills, issues, resources, and techniques to help succeed in that discipline.
