dc.description.abstract

This paper looks at how research findings are communicated to library practitioners, the ways in which practitioners can be involved in research, and the application of research in practice. I begin by discussing findings from my doctoral research relating to practitioner reading habits and the communication channels responsible for practitioners gaining awareness of research. This is followed by a description of the systematic review process as carried out by an evidence-based nursing centre to illustrate how other fields involve practitioners in research. I then provide an example of applying research in practice, drawn from my current position in an academic library. I conclude by proposing a number of strategies to improve research communication and the application of research in practice in information and library studies.
