Hannon Library Welcomes the 2016 IRDL Scholars


For the past three years, the William H. Hannon Library has hosted a summer research institute for professional librarians and archivists: the Institute for Research Design in Librarianship (IRDL).

Funded in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and supported by the San José State University School of Information and the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium, IRDL is a two week program designed “to bring together a diverse group of academic and research librarians who are motivated and enthusiastic about conducting research but need additional training and/or other support to perform the steps successfully.” The IRDL scholars will learn about various research methods (both qualitative and quantitative), scholarly publishing strategies, and tools for strengthening their personal learning networks.

This year, the IRDL brings together 21 scholars from around the country. You can read more about them on the IRDL website and follow their progress on Twitter. Good luck scholars!
