Event: ACRL/ANSS’ Sociology Discussion Group
Date: Saturday, June 24, 2017
Time: 10:30am to 11:30am (Central)
Location: Palmer House Hilton, Price Room
Our Annual meeting will feature special guest, Rob Newman, Senior Product Manager at ProQuest, to discuss the database, Sociological Abstracts. Rob will give a brief, 15-minute presentation about the database, followed by 45 minutes of group discussion.
Some issues the group raised about the database at its virtual Midwinter meeting pertained to content selection, controlled vocabulary, limits/filters, ASA style, and the existence of a librarian advisory group. We hope to discuss all of these and more!
