Library and information science research project awarded GBP45,000 grant
"The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) has awarded a GBP45,000 grant to develop a formal UK-wide network of Library and Information Science (LIS) researchers. The network will spread expertise through a connected community across all LIS sectors. It will provide high quality training events and opportunities for knowledge exchange. The ultimate aim is to improve library and information services. The grant has been awarded to Dr Hazel Hall, Director of the Centre for Social Informatics at Edinburgh Napier University and Executive Secretary of the Library and Information Science Research Coalition. It has been awarded for a project called Developing Research Excellence and Methods (DREaM). The project will last for twenty months from January 2011 until August 2012"
