Abstract
This report investigates the research practices of Brown’s faculty in modern languages and literatures in order to inform Library planning to address the challenges faculty face. As part of Ithaka S+R’s research and support services program, and sponsored by the Modern Language Association, thirteen American universities, including Brown, investigated the needs and interests of tenure-track faculty in the fields of modern languages and literatures. This report uncovers the challenges faculty face in searching for materials on library discovery platforms in terms of user experience design and due to broader problems in finding materials both in the United States and outside of it. In addition, this report relays how faculty stay current or struggle to stay current on evolving methodologies, technologies, and tools for research. In addition to addressing the challenges faculty face, this report provides a list of recommendations for actions the Library can take to better support faculty needs.
