Led by Vickie Kilgore, Senior Director of Research for the Insurance Research Council. Vickie has been researching public policy issues affecting the insurance industry for more than 20 years.

Any SIR member interested in this content is welcome to join. Like the CI Roundtables, the anti-trust guidelines should be adhered to in these conversations.

Context is King: Using the Reference Interview to Guide Your Research

February 17, 2022

12 pm - 1 pm Central Time, 1 pm - 2 pm Eastern, 10 am - 11 am Pacific

Join us for a professional skills development session to help competitive intelligence professionals grow their research toolkit. We'll discuss an informal technique used by reference librarians in research libraries called the “reference interview.”  The technique helps get at the information NEED of a client (not simply what the client is asking for) for just-in-time inquires.

“Participating on the SIR Annual Conference Committees has allowed me to expand my network and develop new personal and professional connections. It has provided me with significant opportunities to work on impactful projects, which has allowed me to grow and gain valuable experience outside of my role at my company.”
