Information about the Alliance Research Interest group: =======================================================

“The Alliance Research Interest Group facilitates communication and discovery between institutions, providing a forum for discussion and development of collaborative research related to all aspects of library work.

The objectives of this group include 1) Helping each other learn how to do better research and 2) Making more efficient use of our collective resources, thus advancing our individual research interests more quickly. Pursuing these two major objectives has the additional benefit of providing the qualitative and quantitative data necessary for improved assessment and advocacy.”
