Addressing the gap
between research and
practice: see also social
work, nursing, policing…

Williamson (1931)
“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)

86 years later: still calls for
research-led practice and
practitioner-led research
Themes and trends in library and information research – Canterbury – 8th November 2017
www.napier.ac.uk/iidi
Why research-led practice?
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
research 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 is maintained 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)
Themes and trends in library and information research – Canterbury – 8th November 2017
www.napier.ac.uk/iidi
Why practitioner-led research?
To meet service and organisational priorities
Inform practice, decisions on future service
developments
Demonstrate value and impact
Themes and trends in library and information research – Canterbury – 8th November 2017
www.napier.ac.uk/iidi
Practitioner-led research: personal benefits
Job satisfaction
Intellectual stimulation and enjoyment
of learning
Pride in enhancing work practice
(Retention)
Career benefits
Strengthened connection with subject
area

profile/reputation, e.g. through

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 research 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 is maintained 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)
