Researcher case study resource

Over the past few months, I have been collecting some case studies from City University London research students and staff and have been collating them on a case study resource. This showcases the work of City research students and staff and also the breadth of approaches and Library resources available.

The purpose of this resource is to give a practical insight into researching different subjects from the point of view of a research student or staff member who has either recently researched the topic(s) or is a new or experienced researcher. I hope it will also be useful for other students researching these topics of those who use a multi-disciplinary approach.

It concentrates on areas such as:  Library resources such as databases and journals, useful textbooks, literature searching experiences and keywords and any publications, articles blog posts etc.

It is useful to show the breadth of approaches to research and also the inter-disciplinary research that is taking place and there are both similarities and differences in the tools that researchers use.

Some examples of case studies are:  Ludi Price (Library & Information Studies) and  Dr Ernesto Priego (Library & Information Studies) and Rebecca Wells (Food Policy and Journalism).

If any City research students or staff would like to contribute a case study about your research and use of research tools and Library resources, you can easily do so by completing the contact form. I will then create a draft case study for you to approve and if we can agree some content, the case study will appear on the citylibresearchcasestudies resource.
