Rapporteur: Silvia Anton, Museums, Libraries and Archives Council
This session will explore less well-used methods for conducting research in the library and information science discipline such as Delphi studies, co-operative inquiry, and community consultation. It will draw upon real practical case examples of research undertaken at Northumbria University which have deployed such methods, and/or used novel combinations of more established methods. Novel approaches to disseminating research will also be covered. The session will include activities and discussion of the advantages and drawbacks of using particular methods for particular scenarios and research topics.
