Importance of research-led practice
To exploit existing knowledge base for services (outcomes)
improvement  improve decision making for services delivery
To enhance the value of prior work
• to capitalise on significant investment in previous studies
• to raise the value of previous studies through reuse
To demonstrate the value and impact of service delivery

…contributed to improvements in
pupils‟ exam results
…attracted international student fee

Barriers to research-led practice: “evaluation by-pass”
(Booth, 2006)
Valuable research work is often not published at all
Multidisciplinary nature of the LIS literature, across publications of various domains,
makes it difficult to access
Much valuable research is held in grey sources: straightforward access not always
obvious, e.g. unpublished internal studies, summaries on listservs
There is a preference amongst practitioners for face-to-face dissemination channels
- tailored, lowered incidence of information overload, addresses issues of
fragmented infrastructures – but opportunities to attend professional events are few
Some practitioners suffer restricted access to social media channels – valued for
immediacy, updates on on-going projects
Page 12
Booth, A. (2006). Clear and present questions: formulating questions for evidence based practice. Library Hi Tech, 24(3), 355-368.
www.napier.ac.uk/iidi
And lack of practitioner-led research (as opposed to
research-led practice)?
Irony of librarians helping others identify evidence to support their
practice, but less likely to do for themselves
Few LIS practitioners publish research in international peer-reviewed
journals – except North American librarians seeking tenure
Page 13
www.napier.ac.uk/iidi Page 14
Time constraints of the practitioner role
Limited knowledge of research
approaches
Low internal support of research activity
Poor access to external support of
research activity, e.g. funding, mentors
Failure to recognise research of others
and own research activity/skills as such

To facilitate a co-ordinated and strategic
approach to LIS research across the UK
Bring together information about LIS research
opportunities and results
Encourage dialogue between research funders
Promote LIS practitioner research and the
translation of research outcomes into practice
Articulate a strategic approach to LIS research
Promote the development of research capacity in
LIS

To develop a UK-wide
network of LIS researchers
(2011-2012)
Funding to develop a UK-wide network of LIS

Critical incident technique - cadre reported
Increased research capacity and capability
Growth in knowledge and research confidence
Raised standards
Impact and influence – demonstrating research knowledge in the
workplace
Quality of training – new resources to share
Research practice – methodological choice
Foundations for future collaborations
Widened networks and research relationships

To explore the extent to which
LIS research projects
influence practice (2011)
To create outputs to support
the use and execution of
research by librarians and
information scientists (2012)
www.napier.ac.uk/iidi
Addressing the issues: project conception
Researchers should involve practitioners in research design
Funders should support research that is relevant to the needs of the
practitioner community and – allied to this – an explicit goal of research
should be to influence practice
Research undertaken should have high level support: steering
committees, influential stakeholders
Page 37
www.napier.ac.uk/iidi
Addressing the issues: project execution
Practitioners should be invited to participate in the research from the
outset, e.g. capacity building workshops as hook
Information about the project should be disseminated throughout its
duration (and not just at the end)
Page 38
www.napier.ac.uk/iidi
Addressing the issues: project reporting
Output is best “digested” by practitioners in teaching and community
support materials
Recommendations should be made explicit – data should not be left to
“speak for themselves”
Opportunities for face-to-face delivery should be sought
Textual sources need to be presented in accessible language
Report in the “right” places: professional journals, open access, tweet
and blog, use key researcher connectors

  • 12. www.napier.ac.uk/iidi Barriers to research-led practice: “evaluation by-pass” (Booth, 2006) Valuable research work is often not published at all Multidisciplinary nature of the LIS literature, across publications of various domains, makes it difficult to access Much valuable research is held in grey sources: straightforward access not always obvious, e.g. unpublished internal studies, summaries on listservs There is a preference amongst practitioners for face-to-face dissemination channels - tailored, lowered incidence of information overload, addresses issues of fragmented infrastructures – but opportunities to attend professional events are few Some practitioners suffer restricted access to social media channels – valued for immediacy, updates on on-going projects Page 12 Booth, A. (2006). Clear and present questions: formulating questions for evidence based practice. Library Hi Tech, 24(3), 355-368.
  • 13. www.napier.ac.uk/iidi And lack of practitioner-led research (as opposed to research-led practice)? Irony of librarians helping others identify evidence to support their practice, but less likely to do for themselves Few LIS practitioners publish research in international peer-reviewed journals – except North American librarians seeking tenure Page 13
  • 14. www.napier.ac.uk/iidi Page 14 Time constraints of the practitioner role Limited knowledge of research approaches Low internal support of research activity Poor access to external support of research activity, e.g. funding, mentors Failure to recognise research of others and own research activity/skills as such Mind the gap (26 November 2006) by Luigi Rosa.

  • 37. www.napier.ac.uk/iidi Addressing the issues: project conception Researchers should involve practitioners in research design Funders should support research that is relevant to the needs of the practitioner community and – allied to this – an explicit goal of research should be to influence practice Research undertaken should have high level support: steering committees, influential stakeholders Page 37
  • 38. www.napier.ac.uk/iidi Addressing the issues: project execution Practitioners should be invited to participate in the research from the outset, e.g. capacity building workshops as hook Information about the project should be disseminated throughout its duration (and not just at the end) Page 38
  • 39. www.napier.ac.uk/iidi Addressing the issues: project reporting Output is best “digested” by practitioners in teaching and community support materials Recommendations should be made explicit – data should not be left to “speak for themselves” Opportunities for face-to-face delivery should be sought Textual sources need to be presented in accessible language Report in the “right” places: professional journals, open access, tweet and blog, use key researcher connectors Page 39
