  1. 1. LIBRARIANS AS PRACTITIONER RESEARCHERS Developing an inside perspective of the research process through learning circles • Librarians improved their ability to deliver high-level and agile library research support, by relating it to their own research project. • Embarked on the research process by investigating the effectiveness of an online learning module. • Embraced the role of practitioner-researchers by initiating and conducting the research project following a Learning Circle approach. • A Learning Circle aims "to build, share, and express knowledge though a process of open dialogue and deep reflection around issues or problems with a focus on a shared outcome” (Lenning & Tinto 2013, p. 25).
