    4. 4. Research MethodologiesNon-research Qualitative research Systematic Reviews Focus Audits, Meta analysis groups, Delp surveys, hi etc techniques, i Randomized Controlled nterviews Clinical Trials Cohort Studies Case Studies Expert Opinion
    5. 5. EBL In The Real World“Real world” – setting /preferences / cost /circumstances NeedReview Defined /outcomes Application Question answerable Critically Appraisal Evidence Resources evaluate
    6. 6. Question• Types of question – Prediction – Intervention – Exploration• Domains – six / seven• PICO / SPICE
    7. 7. Evidence• Has this problem already been researched?• Is there any relevant research outside the LIS area? – Education – Management – Marketing
    8. 8. No Relevant Research Identified - I• E-mail a discussion list for unpublished research / feedback from others• Do the research yourself• Employ someone else to do the research• Student placement / work experience• Student dissertation
    9. 9. Potential Research Issues• Time• Lack of personal skills / self-confidence• Lack of senior or management support• Cost
    10. 10. No Relevant Research Identified - II • Collaborate • Mentor • Networking • Funding sources
