  18. 18. www.napier.ac.uk/iidi ‘To facilitate a co-ordinated and strategic approach to LIS research across the UK’ Page 18 Provision of a formal structure To improve access to LIS research To maximise the relevance and impact of LIS research Main aims To bring together information about LIS research opportunities and results To encourage dialogue between research funders To promote LIS practitioner research and the translation of research outcomes into practice To articulate a strategic approach to LIS research To promote the development of research capacity in LIS
  19. 19. www.napier.ac.uk/iidi Williamson (1931) Page 19 “RESEARCH: What attitude does the word evoke…Is the emotional state produced pleasant or unpleasant, or a mixture of these two elementary reactions?” (p. 1) “What about research in the library field? A little sporadic work here and there…” (p. 5)

  21. 21. www.napier.ac.uk/iidi Why research-led practice? Page 21 To exploit the existing knowledge-base for service improvement For improvements in decision making for services delivery To enhance the value of prior work So that it is possible to capitalise on significant investment in prior work To raise the value of previous studies through reuse To demonstrate the value and impact of service delivery beyond “libraries are a good thing” So that investment continues and high levels of service continue “Even though the librarian may not himself engage in serious research, he should be able to grasp readily and appreciate the significance of scientific studies made by others.” (Williamson, 1931, p. 16)

  24. 24. www.napier.ac.uk/iidi Practitioner-led research Page 24 To meet service and organisational priorities Inform practice, decisions on future service developments Demonstrate value and impact Personal priorities Strengthen connection with subject area Job satisfaction: intellectual stimulation and enjoyment of learning, pride in enhancing work practice, (retention) Enhancement of ‘peer’ relationships, e.g. academia Career benefits: profile/reputation (e.g. through publications), leadership development, CPD  career progression

  31. 31. www.napier.ac.uk/iidi Page 31 Since 2012, to what extent have the workshop participants: Implemented new and innovative research methods/techniques in their work-place environments? Undertaken and disseminated relevant, high priority research output to inform policy, determine information services provision, and develop the future LIS research agenda? Experienced enhanced possibilities for exploring avenues for new research initiatives as a result of network participation? Continued to work as a network? Witnessed impact of their post-DREaM research on end- user communities? DREaM impact study: research questions
