Toolkits and guidelines for LIS researchers

  • ESRC National Training Centre for Research Methods. a network of research groups, each conducting research and training in social science research methods. Coordinating at the University of Southampton
  • HEALER research toolkit: The toolkit is intended as a starting point for those wishing to undertake a research project, highlighting issues to consider and signposting resources. Although primarily aimed at those working in health librarianship it is of value to LIS researchers across sectors.
  • Social media – a guide for researchers: Produced by the International Centre for Guidance Studies, and aims to provide the information needed to make an informed decision about using social media and select from the vast range of tools that are available.
  • Writing a research proposal: planning and communicating your research ideas effectively. This Library and Information Research Journal (LIR) article by Juliet Eve is designed to guide researchers through the stages in writing an effective research proposal.
