RTI News: Research Interests of Librarians

As part of the application process for the MLA Research Training Institute (RTI), applicants submit a list of key words or phrases that describes the topic of their research that year. Below are word clouds of the key words that were submitted to the RTI for each year since 2018. These images visualize the word frequency of the key words from the applications, the larger the word, the more times it was mentioned by the applicants. Word clouds are interesting because they are one way of tracking the current research interests of health sciences librarians. Let us know what you think about these word clouds.
