What is research evidence?

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

It is time to dispel the myth that only ‘researchers’ or ‘academics’ in the information profession can and should do research. All information professionals have a place in collecting and examining data to improve their services, resources, and spaces. For example, why not use a short questionnaire to find out what your university’s students think of your library’s new app, and then use the results to refine it? This presentation will discuss ‘research evidence’ in library and information settings and explore how it can be used in practice.
