Title:Interdisciplinarity in Students’ Research Papers: The Impact of Assignment Requirements on Students’ Use of Interdisciplinary Sources in an LIS Research Methods Course
Author(s):Colón-Aguirre, Mónica; Bright, Kawanna
Subject(s):LIS education
Interdisciplinary research
Student research
Abstract:Library and information science (LIS) is an interdisciplinary field; however, historical studies of the use of sources and literature outside of library science indicate a lack of use of interdisciplinary sources. Research also shows reliance on a handful of sources. This study will explore the influence of strategic assignment requirements for a final paper on students’ use of interdisciplinary sources in their work.
