Title: ‘Beyond library 'science' : (artsy) new professionals reflect on research
Author: Fields, Erin
Subject Keywords library research;humanities;library methodology
Issue Date: 2012-01-19
Abstract: In light of the increasing emphasis on librarians as scholars, this panel will draw attention to the limitations experienced by new professionals with humanities backgrounds who are operating in an LIS research environment dominated by (social) science methodologies and perspectives. As well as highlighting barriers created by invocations of "pragmatism" that align research support chiefly with quantifiable outcomes, the panel will also deepen understanding of the value of critical humanities methods to the profession. Discussion and networking within the session will hopefully also lead to collaborations in support of a more truly diverse research environment.
