Abstract

Between 2009 and 2012 there was considerable investment in three UK projects related to library and information science (LIS) research: (1) the Library and Information Science Research Coalition; (2) the AHRC-funded Developing Research Excellence and Methods (DREaM) project; and (3) the Research in Librarianship Impact Evaluation Study (RiLIES). This paper presents the main features of each project, and discusses their value with reference to maximising the relevance and impact of research to LIS practitioners. It outlines plans for the support of LIS research in the UK beyond 2012.
