Qualitative Research for the Information Professional : A Practical Handbook, Hardback Book

Qualitative Research for the Information Professional : A Practical Handbook Hardback

Hardback

Description

This established text is the only introduction to qualitative research methodologies in the field of library and information management.

Its extensive coverage encompasses all aspects of qualitative research work from conception to completion, and all types of study in a variety of settings from multi-site projects to data organization.

The book features many case studies and examples, and offers a comprehensive manual of practice designed for LIS professionals.

This new edition has been thoroughly revised and includes three new chapters.

It has been updated to take account of the substantial growth in the amount and quality of web-based information relevant to qualitative research methods and practice, and the many developments in software applications and resources.

The authors have identified a clear need for a new chapter on the evaluation of existing research, as a gateway into new research for information professionals.

The final chapter, 'Human Resources In Knowledge Management', takes the form of a model case study, and is an 'ideal' qualitative investigation in an information setting.

It exemplifies many of the approaches to qualitative research discussed in earlier chapters. Readership: Directed primarily at the beginner researcher, this book also offers a practical refresher in this important area for the more experienced researcher.

It is a useful tool for all practitioners and researchers in information organizations, whether libraries, archives, knowledge management centres, record management centres, or any other type of information service provider.
