Academic research—in every field from business and management to medicine and even librarianship—frequently discovers crucial ways to improve efficacy and efficiency. But that only helps only if those findings get applied in practice.

In this webinar, find out how best to get your existing collections used, not just for study, but to inform the real-world decisions of current and former students; how to acquire the right resources to get new actionable research into the hands of those who need it; and how to help your faculty get their scholarly publications noticed by the practitioners, consultants, and other influencers who can ensure their discoveries are widely used and understood.
