Description

Research Methods: Information, Systems, and Contexts, Second Edition, presents up-to-date guidance on how to teach research methods to graduate students and professionals working in information management, information science, librarianship, archives, and records and information systems. It provides a coherent and precise account of current research themes and structures, giving students guidance, appreciation of the scope of research paradigms, and the consequences of specific courses of action. Each of these valuable sections will help users determine the relevance of particular approaches to their own questions. The book presents academics who teach research and information professionals who carry out research with new resources and guidance on lesser-known research paradigms.

Author Biography

Kirsty Williamson is an adjunct senior research fellow at Monash University and Charles Sturt University in Australia. For many years she was the Director of the research group, Information and Telecommunications Needs Research (ITNR), a joint initiative of both universities. Since the early 1990s she has undertaken many research projects, with her principal area of research being human information behavior. Apart from two editions of an earlier research methods book, Research Methods for Students, Academics and Professionals: Information Management and Systems, she has many journal articles to her credit, including five in the highly ranked Library and Information Science Research. Graeme Johanson is Director of the Centre for Community Networking Research at Monash University. He has undertaken academic research for 45 years, with his research findings widely published, leading to his supervision in many research projects, mainly about the evaluation and use of information and communications technologies for the benefit of developing countries and marginalized groups of people. His initial interest in archives, historical documents, and oral history led him to work as a librarian in research institutions for ten years before becoming an academic.
