Amanda B. Click, Business Librarian, American University, along with her research teammates Claire Wiley, Research and Instruction Librarian, Belmont University and Meggan Houlihan, Coordinator of Library Instruction and Student Programs, New York University Abu Dhabi, were named the 2019 winner of the BRASS Research Grant Award, sponsored by Emerald Publishing. The winning project was, “The Framework in business information literacy: A mixed methods study”.
The proposal is for a mixed method study that aims to explore the ways that librarians – specifically those that provide support to business students and faculty – use the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education in their instruction work. The study will include a systematic review, a survey, and focus groups, with the goal of identifying best practices and new ideas for teaching as well as increasing the value of the Framework for business librarians.
Sponsored by Emerald Publishing, the award consists of $5,000 and a citation.
The BRASS Emerald Research Grant Award committee includes: Ms. Lisa Louis (Chair), Jennifer C. Boettcher, Paul Brothers, and Yan Liu.
