Key words of the 2017 IRDL applications
One of the things we enjoy about reading all the IRDL applications is that we get to keep a finger on the pulse of the current research interests of academic librarians around the United States. When an applicant submits their proposal we ask them to list five key words or phrases that represent the topic of their proposed research. Here’s a word cloud of the key words from this year’s applications. In the image below, the larger the word, the more times the word was given as a key word in the applications.
