Title:Library as Research Lab: New Research Engagement Model for LIS Students and Professionals
Author(s):Rieh, Soo Young; Yakel, Elizabeth; Alexander, Laurie
Subject(s):Research competency
Research engagement model
Program evaluation study
Abstract:We present a research engagement model called “Library as Research Lab,” designed to foster research on library practices while enabling LIS students to hone research skills and librarians to adopt evidence-based practices. By creating three research labs through collaboration between one iSchool and a university library on campus, the program provides unique learning opportunities for master’s students, academic librarians, and faculty to engage in research activities over a full academic year. This paper introduces program activities for the Library as Research Lab project. The results of program evaluation based on data collected from participating students and librarians are also reported.
