Albarillo (Eds.), Reflections on practitioner research: A practical guide for information professionals (pp. 261-270). Association of College & Research Libraries.
In this chapter, we describe the process of working on a cross-institutional study. We begin with background information on our study’s aims and methods and then move on to the nuts and bolts of collaborating on a research project with librarians at other institutions. We discuss designing a research project, applying for IRB approval at multiple institutions, obtaining funding, collaborating on data analysis and the literature review process, project management and communicating, establishing realistic timeframes and goals, and collaborating on writing up and disseminating your research. We conclude the chapter with a reflection on the value of cross-institutional research and lessons learned from our experience.
