Opportunity to contribute to librarianship research evaluation study (UK)

Opportunity to contribute to librarianship research evaluation study (UK)Librarians and library and information science researchers have the opportunity to contribute to the Research in Librarianship - Impact Evaluation Study (RiLIES). The study explores the extent to which funded librarianship research projects influence library practice in the UK. The first opportunity to contribute is by filling in a short poll by Sunday 6th March. The poll will take no more than five minutes to complete. It will be used to identify research projects that could be used for case studies and help understand the needs of librarians when using research to improve library and information services. Dr Hazel Hall is leading the project, she said: "The RiLIES research project is an exciting new development which will help us understand the impact of research projects on the day-to-day work carried out by library and information professionals. RiLIES will shine a light on the value of research in improving library and information services." Further information about RiLIES is available from the LIS Research Coalition website and from the project's Twitter feed. Dr Hazel Hall is Director of the Centre for Social Informatics at Edinburgh Napier University and Executive Secretary of the Library and Information Science Research Coalition. RiLIES will run from February to July 2011
