|Brittany Netherton and her research poster|
Brittany Netherton, graduate assistant in Reference Services at William T. Young Library, recently presented a poster at the Rutgers iSchool Research Invitational in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Brittany’s poster, based on her research, was titled Information Needs and Information-Seeking Behaviors of Undergraduate Education Abroad Students. Her presentation focused on how libraries can use the results of a survey she conducted to improve outreach to education abroad students.
Only 14 students with in-progress or recently completed masters degrees from iSchools across the United States and Canada were chosen to participate in the Research Invitational.
While at Rutgers, Brittany had the opportunity to network with peers in LIS programs at other universities, discuss current LIS topics with top researchers in the field, and learn about the Ph.D. programs offered by Rutgers University's School of Communication and Information.
