Ebrowsing Panel Discussion at ACRL

If you will be in Portland for ACRL, please join us! We’re looking forward to a lively discussion and we welcome your questions.
 
Limited by Search: The Need for More Effective Ebrowsing Environments
Friday March 27, 11am-12pm
Oregon Convention Center, Portland Ballroom 252
 
The terms “discovery” and “search” have become conflated in our lexicon and in the functionality of discovery systems. Consequently, the other major component of discovery, browse, has been cast aside as outdated and irrelevant. Join practitioners and designers for a discussion of the failures of our search-focused discovery systems and the benefits of bringing browse back to discovery.
Panelists:
Emily Gore, Director for Content at the Digital Public Library of America
Sarah Falls, Head, Fine Arts Library, The Ohio State University Libraries
Gregg Gordon, President, Social Sciences Research Network

Kate Joranson

Business Reference Librarian, Katz Graduate School of Business, University of Pittsburgh Kate Joranson studied art at the University of Wisconsin, earned her MFA at Ohio State University, and an MLIS at the University of Pittsburgh. As both a librarian and an artist, she enjoys the accidental nature of looking for one thing, and finding something else. As a blogger, she cultivates collisions and connections among seemingly disparate interests. Snow drifts, messy kitchens, market research, and pink scaffolding are all topics you may encounter on her blog, where she explores search engines as a medium. Also: small business owner, gardener, knitter.
