Creating a Research Agenda

Creating a Research Agenda | Librarianship & More | Scoop.it

Creating a research agenda should be a major goal for all graduate students — regardless of theoretical interests, methodological preferences, or career aspirations. A research agenda helps you orient yourself toward both short- and long-term goals; it will guide your selection of classes, help you decide which academic conferences (and within those, which specific divisions) to engage in, and steer you in recruiting mentors and research collaborators.

Welcome to E-LIS repository - E-Prints in Library and Information Science

Welcome to E-LIS repository - E-Prints in Library and Information Science | Librarianship & More | Scoop.it

In a few years, E-LIS has been established as the largest international open repository in the field of library and information science. Searching or browsing E-LIS is a kind of multilingual, multicultural experience, an example of what could be accomplished through open access archives to bring the people of the world together. Because librarians are so involved in open access advocacy, E-LIS is a key to encourage open access for all repositories, by giving librarians the experience they need to speak with confidence when talking with researchers and open access archives, and the experience to provide the best possible assistance to self-archiving faculty.

Coding In Paradise: Creating a Personal Research Agenda

Coding In Paradise: Creating a Personal Research Agenda | Librarianship & More | Scoop.it

A Research Agenda is a list of questions to focus on -- they are the destinations you are tacking towards, the organizing principle around which you work. You might not be focusing on all of them all the time, but just formulating a list and putting it down will cause your mind to roll over them in the background like a kind of background thread.
