Library Trends 46 (4) Spring 1998: Qualitative Research


Library Trends 46 (4) Spring 1998: Qualitative Research. Edited by Gillian M. McCombs and Theresa M. Maylone.

This issue of Library Trends is “about” qualitative research; we are using a concept to investigate a “way of knowing,” to understand and make sense of the phenomena we observe in our professional and academic settings. Qualitative research, in the way that the following articles discuss it and provide examples of its practice, is also about ways of seeing. This collection of articles grew out of Library Research Seminar I, a unique and wonderful conference held in Tallahassee, Florida, in 1996. The conference was unique in that it required presentations to demonstrate, in the supportive context of research, the confluence of academicians and practitioners.

Library Trends (ISSN 0024-2594) is an essential tool for librarians and educators alike. Each issue thoroughly explores a current topic of interest in professional librarianship and includes practical applications, thorough analyses, and literature reviews. The journal is published quarterly for the Graduate School of Library and Information Science by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
