Library UX Chicago is pleased to host Drs. Donna Lanclos and Andrew Asher for an in-person workshop on ethnographic research methods in libraries held at DePaul University’s John T. Richardson Library on the Lincoln Park campus. This event will take place on Tuesday, October 3, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM CDT, and is open to all Illinois libraries.
CARLI and RAILS will sponsor this full-day workshop that empowers participants to think critically about the contexts in which their library’s services and spaces operate. Participants will work together to identify patterns and trends in ethnographic data which they will be asked to collect prior to the workshop. They will learn frameworks for analyzing qualitative data, strategies for identifying and communicating actionable insights with these data, and approaches to developing areas for future inquiry or partnership.
· Participants will gain experience with the use of qualitative methods for data collection in various institutional contexts.
· Participants will connect qualitative methods to important questions about people and practices within and around their institutional contexts.
· Participants will gain experience with frameworks and processes for developing conclusions and recommendations based on qualitative data.
