Crowd Sourcing Request: Do You Have Questions about the Research Process?

Are you looking for answers about research methods and the research process?
If so, we are able to help you. Marie Radford of Rutgers University and I are working on the 6th edition of the book, Research Methods in Library and Information Science (formerly titled Basic Research Methods for Librarians), which overviews the research process and key applications of qualitative and quantitative research methods for researchers, students, and practitioners in the field of Library and Information Science. In the book, we would like to answer questions about the use of quantitative and/or qualitative methods posed by practicing librarians. An example of a question would be, What are the steps that one should take to develop a research question?

If you have any questions about the research process or research methods that you would like answered, please go to
http://bit.ly/1KqRDp7 and complete the short Google Form.

We also would appreciate it if you would pass along this email to other librarians who might be interested in submitting questions.

Thank you in advance for your help!
