  • Introductory overview with interdisciplinary examples/perspective
  • LIS DREaM 2: Social Network Analysis Workshop Exercise Results

    1. 1. DREaM 2 eventSocial Network Analysis exercise –some initial findings. Dr. Louise Cooke, Dept. of Information Science, Loughborough University
    2. 2. Knowledge & Expertise
    3. 3. Knowledge & Expertise: GenderFemaleMale
    4. 4. Knowledge & Expertise: RoleP = Public library practitionerA = Academic LibrarianH = Health Sector LibrarianL= Other Sector LibrarianS = PhD StudentR = Academic or University ResearcherO = Other
    5. 5. Network Measures:Knowledge & Expertise Overall density 0.1787 No. of ties 238 Avg. degree centrality 6.4324 Highest out-degree centrality = 22 Highest in-degree centrality = 30 20 cliques
    6. 6. Prior Acquaintanceship
    7. 7. Prior Acquaintanceship: GenderFemaleMale
    8. 8. Prior Acquaintanceship: RoleP = Public library practitionerA = Academic LibrarianH = Health Sector LibrarianL= Other Sector LibrarianS = PhD StudentR = Academic or University ResearcherO = Other
    9. 9. ‘Others’Those who selected ‘other’ as theirprimary status, were mostly in eithervery senior managerial roles, or inconsultancy roles. This tends to bereflected in the centrality of theirnetwork positions.
    10. 10. Network Measures: PriorAcquaintanceship Overall density 0.19 No. of ties 256 Avg. degree centrality 6.9189 Highest outdegree centrality = 36 Highest indegree centrality = 25 Cliques (minimum 3 nodes) = 27 Cliques (minimum 4 nodes) = 18
    11. 11. Some initial thoughts onfindings Our acquaintanceship network is slightly more connected than our knowledge & expertise networks – this is not surprising Both networks have the capacity for improvement of connectivity In particular, there is scope for increasing the connections between established researchers and PhD students – this aligns well with the DREaM project aims.
