A scoping study of evidence needs in the information sector

CILIP is committed to adopting an evidence based approach to policy and practice across the information sector*. As a result, CILIP is now engaged in scoping out the requirements for the development of a sector-wide evidence-base/portal .CILIP wishes to consider the views of various stakeholders about their current evidence needs and what would be desirable in such a portal. Next year it aims to work with like-minded partners in the information sector to develop the portal.

As part of this activity CILIP has commissioned researchers at Birmingham City University and Manchester Metropolitan University to conduct a survey of stakeholders.

We would be extremely grateful if you could help out by taking part in this short survey.  The survey should take only 5-7 minutes to complete and your views would be most valuable. You can access the survey at: https://mmu.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/research-portal-survey

If you have any queries, please contact Sarah McNicol at s.mcnicol@mmu.ac.uk

*For the purposes of this survey, the ‘information and knowledge sector’ includes libraries, archives, records, information management, knowledge management and data science.
