Research & Supervision

The Section for Research and Supervision will focus on building research capacity and stimulating research connections and collaboration in joined projects on topics of mutual interest for the iSchools European Region and the wider iSchools Organisation.

Virtual webinars will be used for:

  • Strengthening the capacity and connections of established researchers and supervisors

  • Introducing early career researchers to the possibilities to build connections and to establish communities of practice

  • Explore methods of research and capacity building of value to the Region and iSchool community

Key topics of interest for 2022 – 2023 include the following; for each the emphasis would be on opportunities, examples and establishing connections for collaboration:

  • Post-colonialism research

  • Representing under-presented voices in information services (libraries, archives, museums and adjunct services) e.g. collection building, services for users with disabilities

  • Autoethnography, reflexivity, journaling and other personal methods of research and capacity building
