This evening from 18:15-19:15 I will be delivering a paper entitled Leadership in libraries: tying library and information science research to practice at the Institute for Research in Social Sciences, University of Ulster.
The presentation draws on my work with the Library and Information Science Research Research Coalition, and the associated DREaM and RiLIES projects. DREaM was concerned with research methods training for library and information professionals, and the RiLIES projects focussed on (1) research impact and (2) resources to support library and information professionals in the consumption and execution of research. This work was completed over a three year period between 2009 and 2012.
I have posted the slides in advance of the presentation to my SlideShare site, and expect that some people will tweet the event. So if you can’t make it, but are interested in the proceedings, please follow remotely using the hash tag #hhulster.
