Around the Federation: 

Interview Request - How do you establish trust and authority in today’s scholarly digital environment?

You are invited to participate in an interview to look at how scholars assign trust and authority to the information sources they choose, use, and cite. The project is funded by the Alfred P. Sloan foundation and the interview will be conducted by an individual of a research team from the University of Tennessee. By participating in an interview you will help inform and influence publishers, librarians, and policy makers on how researchers work within our current and changing digital times.

Interviews will last no more than an hour. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are interested in participating. If you are interested in participating, please fill out this quick survey or e-mail, Rachel Volentine Research Coordinator/Project ManagerCenter for Information and Communication Studies(865)
