Colleagues,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Entries invited - Research Prize for Practitioners

Have you recently undertaken an investigation or carried out some research
for your library or information service?  Has someone within your
organisation carried out some particularly useful study.  The work may have
fed into decision or policy making.  It may mean that the service is more
effective or operations are carried out more efficiently.  It may have
changed the way in which colleagues see things or contributed to a change
in the culture in some significant way.

The Library & Information Research Group (LIRG) invites entries for the
Daphne Clark Prize which is awarded for excellence in practitioner based
library and information research.  The Prize is for research by
practitioners which has made a useful and timely contribution.

The Prize is worth 250 and entries will be judged each year by a panel
made up of members of the Library and Information Research Group.  The
judging panel will look for evidence of successful innovation based upon
sound and transferable research methods.  The Prize is intended to
encourage the use of sound methodologies in practitioner based library and
information research and to encourage wider dissemination of small studies
conducted by practitioners.

Previous prize winners include:
       Sally Rumsey and Jon Maslin of the University of Surrey for their
research, 'Exam Papers On-line'
       Alison Bremner, Open University for her report on their Students
and Libraries Project
       Frances Boyle, Liverpool University for her report on the
University of Liverpool's Document Delivery Research Project
       A project team led by Margaret Weaver, Huddersfield University,
examined the effects of using supplied classification numbers and subject
headings on throughput, cost, and subject retrievability of new
acquisitions

Entries are acceptable from any individuals or staff teams who have
conducted practitioner based research.  Their employer can also nominate
candidates.   Entries should consist of a short summary (2000-5000 words)
of the research activity, method, and outcomes.  This could be the report
of the study supplemented by a brief description of how the research was
used.  Any sort of research project can be nominated but externally funded
projects are not eligible.  The research must have been completed within
the last two years.

Applications should include the name of the candidate(s), a contact
address, and a brief CV.  Candidates may be required to provide further
evidence of the work undertaken (eg working papers, reports, committee
papers etc) if required.

Prize winners will be asked to submit a short report describing their
research within three months of receiving the Prize.  This will be
published in the Group's journal, Library & Information Research News or
publicised as considered appropriate by the judging panel.  If the research
findings have been previously published, then the report submitted for
Library and Information Research News must demonstrate originality.

The closing date for applications is 31st. December 2001 and it is expected
that the prize winner will be announced at the Group's AGM in March 2002.  



Applications should be sent to:
