Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This preconference will introduce research in libraries from developing a research question through publishing the results. A well-designed research process and basic knowledge of quantitative and qualitative data analysis techniques are essential in order to interpret the story hidden in your data. Research can answer questions about what our patrons want in our libraries, how our patrons are currently using our services, and how we might improve the services we offer. Learn about strategies for gathering quantitative and qualitative research data, the elements of good survey design, the rights of research participants, tools and strategies for analyzing data, and potential venues for publishing research results.
