Editorial Reviews

Review

A guide to assist librarians to become more than what they are....Highly recommended for any library science collection and for the librarians themselves. --The Midwest Book Review, May 2008

The perfect book to help librarians find both the time and the expertise needed to conduct thorough and rigorous research....Useful for both novices and experts alike. The entire book could be useful as a textbook....For the expert this book offers the opportunity to explore other methodologies. Beck and Manuel have crafted a superb resource for beginning and veteran researchers alike. --The Journal of Academic Librarianship, May 2008

I would recommend it without hesitation for several audiences. The text should be valuable for library students (regardless of their field), and deserves a look from busy librarians and information professionals as well. --ARBA Vol 39, 2008

"Susan E. Beck and Kate Manuel have written a detailed work on practical research methods that should appeal to librarians and information professionals who struggle to fit serious research into their busy professional duties." --Portal: Libraries and the Academy

I would recommend it without hesitation for several audiences. The text should be valuable for library students (regardless of their field), and deserves a look from busy librarians and information professionals as well. --ARBA Vol 39, 2008

Format: Paperback
Libraries, be they public, academic, corporate, governmental, or personal, are essential resources for building and maintaining a literate, prosperous, and successful community. In the newest addition to the Neal-Schuman roster of superbly presented 'how to' manuals in the field of Library Science, author Susan E. Beck (with 20 years of experience as an academic librarian), challenges librarians to wear the Researcher hat. "Practical Research Methods for Librarians and Information Professionals" is a guide to assist librarians to become more than what they are, walking them step by step through the research process, choosing topics, creating hypotheses, and as such. It outlines everything a librarian would need to know to be an effective and efficient researcher. Highly recommended for any library science collection and for the librarians themselves.
