The methods of action research

Klobas, J.E.ORCID: 0000-0003-2146-7059 (1997) The methods of action research. School Libraries Worldwide, 3 (2). pp. 11-30.


The methods of action research introduced in this article enable a practitioner who is also an action researcher to observe, evaluate, and interpret reliably the effect of an action or intervention on library practice, to integrate a successful intervention into local practice, and to publish the results of an action research project in such a way that other practitioners and researchers can learn from the project. The article emphasizes reflection skills and includes examples of the use of diaries and internal dialogues in reflection.
