Abstract:How well are science and engineering graduates prepared to transition from student to employee? As the corpus of information continues to expand exponentially, an understanding of competitive knowledge, patents, data management, standards documents, publishing, and navigating literature are becoming increasingly important to research, innovation, and entrepreneurship. We are providing an environmental scan through this survey of information professionals to determine what information professionals feel are important skills new scientists and engineers need to have. The information gathered in this survey will help inform further studies examining what faculty and industrial employers value in student education for new graduates.
