How Scientists Do Their Work

This post originally appeared on the Boston University Libraries news page.

The Science Boot Camp is a meeting of information professionals and scientists held every year in the Northeast.  At Boot Camp, librarians and other non-scientists learn about different fields of scientific inquiry and how the scientists in those areas conduct research.  Even if you aren’t an information professional, the videos of Boot Camp talks can give you a good introduction to fields with which you aren’t acquainted.  This year, Bowdoin College hosted the event, inviting scientists in the fields of cognitive neuroscience, marine science, and ornithology to share knowledge of their disciplines.  You can find the videos on the Science Boot Camp YouTube channel.
