Carole L. Palmer, Assistant Professor at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will discuss her studies of interdisciplinary scientists and humanities scholars, focusing on the strategies researchers use to work across multiple intellectual domains.

Posing a preliminary framework of the information resources and activities that are vital to interdisciplinary inquiry, she will explain how the content, structure, and function of research libraries can further support interdisciplinary research and the integration of knowledge.
