Northwest Library Research

This wiki is designed to be a place for documents related to discussions and work of the Alliance Research Interest Group (http://www.orbiscascade.org/index/research-interest-group, A-RIG). This group is focused on research conducted by libraries in the Pacific Northwest. Libraries outside the Orbis Cascade Alliance are welcome to participate! Research done by this group may be related, but is not limited to, focusing on Orbis Cascade Alliance endeavors.


For additional information about this group, read this more in-depth group description or the 2009 OLA presentation (PPT)  by Robin Paynter and Laura Zeigen.


Annual Reports



Information about the frequency of meetings (project groups will meet more often than the larger group) and utilizing existing regional meetings to meet in person, as well as notes from previous meetings.



Read more about what it takes to start a project, or add your own project ideas for the future, on the Projects Overview page.


Professional Development

Information on how to do research, grant writing, journals to explore for publication. Also ideas about helping educated and mentor newly hired librarians in the research and publication process and leveraging the time and interest of experienced librarians who may be having sabbaticals and want to work on a particular project.


Learning from Each Other

Lists of what we want to learn, what we can offer to help teach others, and our research interests. Also ideas about leveraging knowledgeable faculty at our various institutions to help educate us about doing research and presenting statistical and research data and more.


Resources of Interest

Articles, books, web sites, and other resources of interest in a variety of topics related to research, but not necessarily tied to any particular project.
