Imagination in LIS Research
Keywords:research topics, research methods
AbstractThe quality of research in information science and library science is criticized. Researchers are encouraged to use their imagination, empathy and lateral thinking skills. Choice of topic, use of existing theories and theoretical models, literature searching, application of methods and methodologies, and appraisal of results are all areas in which imagination can be used productively. Several published studies are discussed briefly by way of example.
