Which freely available online resources do you consult to find relevant library and information science (LIS) research to help with your job?
Where would you go if you wanted to access advice online on how to set up a new research project of your own?
The RiLIES2 project research team is currently working on the production of some new research resources and training materials. These are intended to support librarians and information scientists in the use of published LIS research in their work. Additionally they will serve as reference tools for librarians and information scientists interested in conducting research projects of their own.
We are keen to ensure that we do not replicate existing provision of resources, and to identify the best format and “home” for the resources that we produce. To this end we invite you to complete this short poll<http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/878039/RiLIES-2-Initial-Poll>. Its purpose is to find out which of the existing resources that support librarians and information scientists use and/or conduct research are (a) well used and/or (b) respected.
The poll<http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/878039/RiLIES-2-Initial-Poll> is aimed at LIS professionals who are based in the UK, but if you live in another country, we would still be interested in your answers.
Please follow this link to take part<http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/878039/RiLIES-2-Initial-Poll>. The poll will remain open until the end of April.
RiLIES2 project is a follow-on project from RiLIES1. RiLIES1 explored the extent to which funded librarianship research projects influence library practice in the UK.
