New Video: OCLC’s Lorcan Dempsey Talks About Turning Research in Action (ALA Midwinter Presentation)
OCLC just uploaded a presentation by Lorcan Dempsey recorded at the OCLC Symposium at ALA Midwinter 2015 in Chicago.
Dempsey is Vice President, OCLC Research and Chief Strategist.
[Dempsey and Hill] discuss how research activities can move beyond insights into action.
Research often starts by recognizing and mapping changes in the environment. But knowing where we are and how we got here is only half of the equation. For research to be valuable, it must also be actionable.
