Title: Sensemaking: The next level of search skills
Abstract:  Sensemaking is what you do when you collect, organize and restructure information to come to some deeper understanding.  In essence, it's the process we follow when we research complex historical topics... or when we're buying a refrigerator.  I'll talk about ways that people do sensemaking, some best practices and how you can improve your sensemaking behavior.
