Have you used these projects?
June 6, 2011 Leave a comment
As we enter the final phases of the RiLIES project, there are still some opportunities for practitioners and researchers to contribute further to the project. One way is to tell us if you have experience of using any of the project outputs of the case studies that we have considered as part of the RiLIES project.
We are really interested in finding examples of the results of these projects being used in day-to-day practice, or as starting points for other research – such as the inspiration for new projects, or to help develop a report or paper (whether published or not, for example as part of a literature review).
The case studies we have used are:
- The study on public library policy and social exclusion Open To All coordinated by Dave Muddiman and reported back in 2000.
- The eValued project in which Pete Dalton and others developed a toolkit to support library and information services staff in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the evaluation of electronic information services (EIS). This work was completed between 2004 and 2006.
- The Research Information Network’s (RIN) 2006 study into Researchers’ use of academic libraries funded by RIN and CURL and completed by Key Perspectives.
- The Future of school libraries project carried out by Sue Shaper and David Streatfield for CILIP’s School Libraries Group. This reported its results in 2010.
- The project entitled Evaluating the impact of clinical librarian services led by Alison Brettle and the North West (England) healthcare librarians group in 2009.
If any of these projects has made an impact on your practice of librarianship, or you have consulted the findings to develop a new project, or a report or paper, we would love to hear from you. Please use the contact form below to tell us. Please be assured that when we use this data in the RilIES project report, individuals will not be identifiable from its content.
If you do not have any experiences to share with us, it’s possible that your colleagues do, so please pass the word around your professional contacts.
