The complexity of research has opened up a proliferation of online technologies that offer a vast range of social capabilities, including sharing, analysis, discussion, networking and collaboration. Researchers are amassing information, making connections and learning from each other’s work more frequently and effectively. As resource experts, how can librarians harness the power of these social tools for their institutions in order to meet the productivity needs of researchers and to help advance the research workflow? How can librarians participate within these social networks and further lend their resource expertise? What are the emerging technologies that might shape the future of research?

The audience will:
- Discover the tools that are inspiring researchers now.
- Learn how active participation in the new technologies and social networks can enable librarians to channel their resource expertise.
- Share ideas and engage in a discussion about what the future holds for the social side of research.
