Elisabeth Jones, Intermittent Lecturer at the UM School of Information, Research Area Specialist for the Dean of Libraries, and Doctoral Candidate in Information Science at the University of Washington, will briefly describe the uses and pragmatics of a selection of social research methods, such as surveys, interviews, and experiments, within library settings, with particular focus on research conducted by professional librarians. We will also discuss the role of research within the library profession, and the extent to which focused training in research methods might (or might not) be useful within MLIS/MSI curricula and/or as a trajectory for continuing education.
