I'm working as part of the RiLIES2 project research team which is currently working on the production of some new research resources and training materials. These are intended to support librarians and information scientists in the use of published LIS research in their work. Additionally they will serve as reference tools for librarians and information scientists interested in conducting research projects of their own.
We are keen to ensure that we do not replicate existing provision of resources, and to identify the best format and “home” for the resources that we produce. To this end we invite you to complete this short poll. Its purpose is to find out which of the existing resources that support librarians and information scientists use and/or conduct research are
(a) well used and/or
The poll is aimed at LIS professionals who are based in the UK, but if you live in another country, we would still be interested in your answers.
a) an individual librarian or information scientist, or
(b) a team that has made a substantial contribution to LIS research since 2009.
The individual or team should be based in the UK or the Republic of Ireland. The award winner(s) will receive £500 and a plaque.
Nominations should take the form of a 500-word statement that demonstrates the research excellence of the candidate (or candidate team) and refers to evidence of their research output as practitioner researchers (e.g. published articles, blogs, conference papers, presentations on SlideShare) since 2009.
