Research workshop for librarians

Over the past few years there has been an increasing emphasis on the role of librarians as researchers. But how do we, as librarians, make the leap from the gathering of information to systematic research, study and analysis.

This workshop is intended as an introductory to intermediate look at research methods, practices and strategies. Participants will learn tools and techniques for making the leap from interesting ideas to researchable topics, and from ‘how we done it good’ reports to publishable research. The workshop will also touch on issues such as finding time to write, forming research teams, and working with colleagues from other disciplines.

Date: Thursday April 9, 2009
Place: Carleton University, Ottawa
Time: 9am to 4pm (with two refreshment breaks)

The workshop will be facilitated by Dr Nancy J. Busch, Associate Dean for Administration, University of Nebraska Lincoln Libraries and Dr Joan Giesecke, Dean of Libraries, University of Nebraska Lincoln Libraries.

This workshop is sponsored by Carleton University Library and the Canadian Association for College and University Libraries (CACUL).
