People Are The Bioeconomy: Social Media for Engaged Information Conversations

People Are The Bioeconomy: Social Media For Engaged Information Conversations

Gerry McKiernan,
Library, Iowa State University, 152 Parks, Ames, IA 50011

While a substantial portion of the primary literature on alternative energy is published in scholarly journals, significant research is also reported in conference publications, dissertations, reports, theses, white papers, and other “gray” literature. This presentation will discuss this literature and the efforts of the Iowa State University Library to identify and acquire key gray publications on the production, use, and impact of biofuels, to support university scientific, technical, and sociological research initiatives. Two alternative energy blogs established to promote core publications and resources to a world community will also be profiled. Major current and future research alternative energy projects at Iowa State will be described as well.

The presentation will conclude with speculation on the potential use of social networking services, such as 2collab,, and the Nature Network to facilitate and support university/industry/government communication, collaboration, and coordination of bioenergy projects.
