Researcher-Librarian Partnership

The Researcher-Librarian Partnership provides the opportunity for new library and information science professionals to develop and refine their skill, knowledge and confidence in conducting research. The Partnership is sponsored by the Library Theory and Research Section of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA). The Partnership is open to practising librarians who have no more than seven years professional experience in the library and information sector at the time of application. The Partnership is not open to individuals occupying research or teaching positions.
The purpose of the Partnership is to provide the opportunity for recipients to receive expert coaching and guidance as they undertake a research project on a selected library or information issue. Up to six recipients will be selected to take part in the Partnership in 2010. The successful recipients will be matched with a mentor who has experience in conducting research.
Nominations close on 3 May 2010 and for further information go to
