    SCONUL Autumn Conference 17 November 2009: The Student Experience
  • 2. Academic research is good but it can’t provide the experience that practitioners have.
    We must PROVE the value we provide with hard evidence. Start thinking what evidence YOU offer.
    Peter Griffiths, CILIP Presidential Address, 15th October 2009
    SCONUL Autumn Conference 17 November 2009: The Student Experience
  • 3. [The LIS Research Coalition]... is a vital step towards building the evidence base.
    See the Coalition web site at http://lisresearch.org
  • 4. Execution barriers, e.g.
    Current funding infrastructure
    Competing service priorities
    Difficulty working with mentors, partners
    Lack of confidence in skills
    Practitioner research – though undertaken – not recognised as such
    Dissemination barriers, e.g.
    Output trapped within institution/sector
    Dissemination limited to particular channels
    Key messages do not reach level of strategy development
    Focus on using only local research output in work
    SCONUL Autumn Conference 17 November 2009: The Student Experience
  • 5. Demonstrate value of library services to student experience where we have
    a diverse body of student experiences
    in an increasingly demand-led environment
    where “consumers” have high expectations of (free) information access
    and an audit culture prevails
    (plus there is a need to service other constituencies)
    SCONUL Autumn Conference 17 November 2009: The Student Experience
  • 6. Research opportunities related to student experience agenda
    go beyond more “visible” issues related to facilities, e.g. upgrading library space, extending opening hours
    relate to broad institutional concerns, e.g. retention, international fees
    interest other LIS sectors: community engagement, library services & learning, evidence-based practice
    More specifically…
    SCONUL Autumn Conference 17 November 2009: The Student Experience
  • 7. What are the roles of academic librarians in the learning processes of students?
    How will scholarly communication develop in the future, and what will be the impact of this on library provision for students?
    How can library provision be better aligned to broad institutional student experience initiatives?
    What is the relationship between awareness of LIS research within the academic library community and good practice for the benefit of students?
    How can we measure the contribution of academic library services to the overall student experience?
    What is the best way to integrate information literacy provision into the curriculum?
    How can we better engage teaching staff with library services?
