Evolving and Emerging Research Methodologies in Information Behavior, Needs, Seeking, and Use (SIG USE)
Saturday, October 27, 2012, Half Day 1:30pm-6:30pm (workshop fee)

The 12th Annual SIG-USE Research Symposium will explore evolving and emerging research methodologies in information behavior, needs, seeking, and use. Participants in the symposium will give brief “lightning talks” on research methods that are either developments of established methods or are on the leading edge of methodologies in the field. Keynote speaker Dr. Lisa Given of Charles Sturt University, Australia, will discuss using photography, participant-driven methods, arts-based approaches and other new methods that push the boundaries of information science research. Workshop attendees will participate actively through lightning talks and proposing of problems to be addressed, and in small and large group brainstorming and discussion activities.
