Loyola Marymount University's William H. Hannon Library, in partnership with San José State University School of Information and the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium, will extend and improve the Institute for Research Design in Librarianship (IRDL). Sixty novice academic and research librarian researchers will receive instruction in research methods and a full year of support to complete a project. Participants will develop their research skills through participation in a summer workshop featuring in-class exercises and hands-on writing sessions as well as research studies conducted at their home libraries. The project team will deliver instruction; create a workshop environment; foster an environment of collegiality and support in the research process; facilitate the dissemination of results; and focus on new evaluative components to create a cost-effective, sustainable model for academic and research librarians to become skilled researchers capable of mentoring and collaborating with one another in their investigative work.
