This link from a tweet titled Research as practice for academic (and any other) librarians seemed to spark a bit of interest from my PLN getting retweeted a few times. I picked it up via the curation tool ZITE. It is a blog post by Mary F. Cavanagh and talks about a presentation in Canada of the Librarians Research Institute. Her top ten matters of fact regarding research are that it’s temperamental, it takes time, it makes your head hurt in a good way, it’s a messy business, it can’t be done off the side of your desk, its called an experiment for a reason, it’s simultaneously a puzzle and a labyrinth, it has its own core structure and vocabulary, it’s part of a bigger picture, and it’s fun and hugely rewarding. Each point has some good points attached to it. A good read.
