Abstract

Jill Powell, engineering librarian from Cornell University, visited the library at NASA Goddard in Greenbelt, Maryland in July 201: interviewing library staff and selected NASA scientists. She studied the librarys digital projects, publications, services, and operations. She also interviewed several NASA scientists on information-seeking behavior and library use. Her results discuss generational differences and applicability to other scientific academic libraries. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
