Starting with a brief examination of user search strategies by using some practical examples, the workshop focuses on the researcher’s use of keywords and abstracts to effectively describe the content of his or her research in order to broaden and improve its dissemination and retrieval by potential users.

  • Presentation and introduction of the topics that will be covered; 
  • brief analysis of research tools (catalogues, discovery tools, databases, etc.); 
  • presentation of user research methods in cataloguing theory; 
  • analysis of a case study;
