InfoPros & “Desktop Searchers” — What do they want?

Outsell’s Leigh Watson-Healey spent some time earlier today sharing what Outsell analysts have determined about the difference between the needs/demands of information professionals and end-users (or in the parlance NFAIS is using here, “desktop searchers.”)

The program is now turning to an examination of these differences from the unique perspectives of experts from four different user settings.

On the platform are (right to left–hey, why not?):

Dr. Dennis Norlin (far right), Executive Director, The American Theological Library Association (Chicago) and panel moderator;

Miriam Drake, Professor Emerita, Georgia Institute of Technology;

Barbara Peterson, Global Knowledge Manager, EcoLab;

Stewart Bodner, Associate Chief Librarian, New York Public Library; and

Richard Huffine, Federal Manager, US EPA Library Network, US Environmental Protection Agency

Several of these folks have, by this time, had their time at the microphone.
Marydee and I are taking notes and we’ll give you some snippets in the next few posts.
