InDr. Wildemuth, Ann Peterson Bishop and Ruth Palmquist organized the first SIG/USE Research Symposium, with the theme Effective Methods for Studying Information Seeking and Use.

Wildemuth’s research interests are primarily related to people’s. The Research and Methods Symposium is a venue for faculty and graduate students to present their research, with a particular focus on methodological issues, both quantitative and qualitative.

Spring Semester March 5: "Using Amazon's MTurk," Sanne Rijkhoff, 1 p.m., 8th Floor conference room. Spring Semester The strength of qualitative research is its ability to provide complex textual descriptions of how people experience a given research issue.

It provides information about the "human" side of an issue- that is, the often contradictory behaviors, beliefs, opinions, emotions, and relationships of individuals. schools. Studies also indicate a close connection between effective school-home communication and increased parental involvement and engagement in learning.

Effective selection and use of Information Communication Technologies (ICT) invites more effective school-home communica-tion, increasing parental involvement and improving student outcomes.

Selecting which research method to use in a research effort is dependant on certain factors. According to Bancroft et al. (), deciding which research method to use in a study is influenced by the degree of control that the researcher has over the over the experiment, and the topic or phenomenon that research the question addresses.

Ideal for those undertaking research in the fields of librarianship and information management, Research Methods for Information Management and Systems: Techniques and Questions is a wide-ranging text that guides students through the literature so that they can pursue their own investigations efficiently and in greater detail.

It is structured according to key topics and divided into four parts.4/4(1). The literature on information seeking behavior has been, and remains, a hot topic for research within various disciplines, but has been limited to review in this article to the field of library and information science, which is where many of the key articles are to be found.
