Conversing at the scholarly party
Academic scholarship can sound dry and boring and removed from the lives of undergraduates. "Think of it as party," says Sara Scheib, UI Libraries' Head of Scholarly Impact, "where there are multiple conversations happening." Learn how scholars use articles to discuss their research, refine each others' ideas and add to the world's knowledge. We can all be part of the scholarly conversation at the academic party.
