Beyond the Survey-Qualitative Research Practices and Techniques

The session will cover ways of gathering, managing, and analyzing qualitative data during this entry-level, hands-on workshop. Participants will learn best practices for conducting one-on-one interviews with patrons and walk away ready to tackle their own exploratory qualitative research projects. 

As part of the day's program Sam Watson of NNLM GMR will be providing an overview of the new PubMed. Sam has graciously offered to take our PubMed questions beforehand so that he can customize his presentation. The registration form provides a place to submit your questions.

Thanks to the support of NNLM GMR 3.0 MLA CE contact hours will be awarded.
