Title: The Right Study of the Right Issues at the Right Time: Conducting In-House Studies in Public Libraries
Author(s): Rodger, Eleanor Jo
Subject(s): Library administration Decision making.
Abstract: THE RIGHT IN-HOUSE STUDY of the right issues at the right time is a valuable managerial resource for library administrators. Effective studies are characterized by clear statements of the study questions, careful translation into measurable terms, appropriate study design, adequate staff training, timely data analysis, and targeted reporting. Studies that are done within a library’s existing management and communication structure are most likely to have the desired impact on decision-making.
