The Library and Information Science Research Coalition (LISRC), which is now two years old, has announced a review of its value and impact.
The review will be conducted by Ian Wooler and co-Editor of BIR Sandra Ward.
A questionnaire, which should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete, will be published on the LISRC website next week and will be available until 8th April 2011.
I attended the excellent Library and Information Science Research Coalition conference at the British Library this week. The well designed programme enabled both audience participation and expert input from speakers. The one-minute madness strand really made an impression and demonstrated yet again that we should all be ready to share important messages in as punchy a way as possible (elevator speech anyone?).
Delegates used the opportunity to share information about their research interests and to find others who had similar interests or who could provide help and support. Most impressive was the ability of almost everyone to speak for exactly 60 seconds without the need for the Chair’s 2010 version of ‘the gong’ – the i-phone vuvuzela app – to hurry them along.
