This textbook seeks to provide essential guidance for librarians, who need to be able to read and evaluate research reports critically and assist others with their research. The book almost exclusively considers basic research methods, as opposed to applied research methods. The perspective is that library-related research should be as sound as any scientific research, and basic concepts are presented accordingly. A second viewpoint is that the conceptual development of a study is as crucial to its success as are the specific techniques employed in its conduct.
