ALAO Research Grant Awarded

Mark Eddy, Case Western Reserve University

The ALAO Research and Publications Committee is very pleased to announce the 2013 RPC Research Grant Program Award winners. The committee received a total of five very impressive applications and would like to extend sincere thanks to all of our applicants. We look forward to hearing more about their exciting research projects, and we very much appreciate your participation in the 2013 RPC research grant program!

For this year’s program the committee elected to grant a single award of $944.50 to a cohort of three Ohio University researchers in support of a project entitled, Informed Instruction: A Needs Assessment Model for Library Workshop Implementation. This project will address the information needs of Ohio University graduate students and implications for instructional design. The study will explore how the information needs of on-campus graduate students differ from those of graduate distance learners, whether or not there is a need for out-of-class instruction for both on-campus and distance students, and what format these instruction opportunities should take in order to maximize the efficiency of student learning and limited staff time.

The co-researchers are,
Hilary C. Bussell
eLearning Librarian / Subject Librarian for Political Science & Public Administration
Ohio University

Christopher S. Guder
Reference & Instruction Librarian
Ohio University

Jessica Hagman
Reference & Instruction Librarian
Ohio University

The ALAO Research & Publications Committee extends hearty congratulations to our award winners!

As chair of the RPC, let me also take this opportunity to thank our committee members for their considerable time and effort with this year’s program. We wish also to thank the ALAO Executive Board for their continued support of our research grant program. It’s been another great year!
