Research Support Services for Agriculture
MetadataShow full item record
In 2016 the University of Georgia Libraries joined 18 other academic libraries serving as local research partners for the project titled “Research Support Services for the Field of Agriculture,” organized by Ithaka S+R, a not-for-profit service that helps the academic community navigate economic and technological change. Having already conducted similar studies in fields ranging from art history to chemistry, Ithaka S+R turned its sights to agriculture for this project, posing the question “What resources and services do your faculty members need to be successful in their teaching and research?” To address the study question, the study team relied upon ethnographic research through in-depth interviews with selected agriculture scholars at UGA. This report analyzes the interview data and considers implications for library services.
