Underpinning it all: the role of research in LLS
Chris Powis 

Abstract: Library and Learning Services is committed to making a full contribution to the life of the university and this means not only supporting research activity but also undertaking research ourselves.  Activity ranges from externally funded research to small scale practitioner projects and has resulted in numerous publications including books, articles (academic and professional), conference papers and reports.  It is unusual in the sector to find such explicit support and encouragement for research and this paper will examine what benefits research has brought to the university, LLS and individual staff.

Presenter: Chris Powis
