Library & Administrative Support for Civil & Environmental Engineering Scholars
Is Version Of
As university researchers' needs for information and research support continue to change over time, it is important for university libraries to assess how well their services fit with the current research environment. Collecting perspectives from scholars in particular fields is a key step in developing and redeveloping library support for research. The Supporting Civil and Environmental Engineering Scholars project was coordinated by Ithaka S+R and sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to explore the research and information needs of scholars in the fields of civil and environmental engineering. All phases of the research process, from idea generation to dissemination of results, were included in the research. Teams were assembled at 11 universities (Appendix 1), including Iowa State University (ISU).
