SPOTLIGHT SESSION: Researching Emerging Issues: Climate Change through a Kaleidoscope

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We will explore researching emerging issues, using climate change as an example. Climatic change affects many professions served by special librarians. It is a relatively new topic, but it already has an extensive and varied resource base. Our speakers will address how they, in their varying fields of research, approach this seemingly common topic in different ways.  Aspects of climate change intersect each speaker’s specialty (e.g., energy, pollution, water and regulations), but some aspects affect only specific fields. We will take examples from each to explore techniques and resources that aid in researching the changing emerging issue of climate change, and draw out common approaches for tackling similarly complex emerging research challenges.
