Abstract: Looking at the ongoing trend in academic institutions with science and engineering focus, it appears that information needs of researchers in those areas are becoming increasingly interdisciplinary in nature. For example, Nanotechnology research requires collaboration among researchers from various expertise areas such as Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering, Chemistry, Biomedical Engineering, Physics, Biotechnology, Nanomedicine and several other fields. Observations of book requests, Journal requests and Librarians’ consultations with faculty and students are indicative of how interdisciplinary their needs have become. The nature of interdisciplinary information needs is expected to have an impact on science and engineering librarianship from several perspectives such as collection development in both print and electronic media, outreach, collection management, library instruction and how both science and engineering librarians in an institution interact with each other. This poster focuses on analyzing such trends among science and engineering librarians at Drexel University and proposes that amalgamated knowledge expertise of both types of librarians is crucial in successful provision of information services to all such emerging technology areas.
