Alison Head, a visiting scholar in the University Libraries, will present an interactive case study of Project Information Literacy’s 2016 lifelong learning study from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Feb. 23 in Love Library South, Room 221.

The two-year study was funded by an Institute of Museum and Library Services National Leadership grant.

Areas of focus in the presentation include:

  • Basics of proposal writing, including how to get funded and keep a program officer engaged;

  • Research design and how to decide which methods to use; and

  • Geographically dispersed research teams and how to facilitate successful collaboration and ongoing communication.

Head is founder and director of Project Information Literacy. While on campus, she is launching a new research study, which looks at undergraduate research behaviors in library learning spaces. For more information on her visit, click here.
