RIN report

A couple of weeks ago the Research Information Network published a report about the way in which researchers in different life-sciences specialisms used information (one of the key points being that there were differences in practice). They have previously published a similar report about information use in the humanities.

Thanks for the mention Shelia - I should say that the humanities case study will be the next one in our report series (not yet done!) and should be out later next year. We held a successful networking session on the life sciences report on 17 November, have a read at the Vitae Researcher Development blog http://www.vitae.ac.uk/researchers/156431-178461/Information-use-in-the-life-sciences-.html - Sarah Gentleman, RIN
