Title: Introduction to Applying research to practice : how to use data collection and research to improve library management decision making (Papers presented at the Allerton Park Institute held October October 27-29, 1991)
Author(s): Estabrook, Leigh S.
Subject(s): Library science --Research
Abstract: In this age of declining resources with constant demands for accountability and productivity, an increasing number of librarians have become researchers and use research in their work. As a result, the LRC has assumed a larger teaching role. On behalf of the Illinois State Library and other professional associations, its staff have led workshops for practicing librarians on such topics as data collection, community analysis, and statistical methods. This Allerton Conference was developed as part of that teaching mission. Papers were focused on topics that could help participants become better consumers of research, understand new ways in which research can help their libraries, and be more informed collaborators in the research process. Participants in the conference also had the opportunity to meet informally to discuss research problems in their individual libraries. Unfortunately, we have no way to represent the important content of these discussions in this printed volume.
