scio2010: What can librarians do for scientists

This is a session by Stephanie Willen Brown and Dorothea Salo .

They started with a bunch of questions. About half the room was librarians, of the others split between affiliated with an institution and not. Where do you go for full text? Google, Google Scholar. Does that work? Sometimes - if not quick if not free to me then move on.

See if your state library has research databases - like NClive, iConn. Contact one of us and we'll put you in contact with someone local.

Come ask your librarian if you need help with anything - even if they don't already provide that service, you help them with ammunition to take to their bosses to start the service and/or can be a guinea pig to test a beta service.

A last thought - needs to be easier to add things to repositories.
