Title

Interdisciplinarity in Students’ Research Papers: The Impact of Assignment Requirements on Students’ Use of Interdisciplinary Sources in an LIS Research Methods Course

Document Type

Conference Proceeding

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.
