LARK (Library Applied Research Kollektive) fosters evidence-based practice and applied research in library and information studies. We welcome members of ALIA and other professional associations with similar interests. As a community of practice, LARK participates in other forms of research support organised by ALIA
The group communicates online and in face-to-face meetings and events. We also facilitate smaller support and interest groups.
LARK maintains a collection of research-related resources on Diigo. Since 2015, LARK has been actively involved with #EBLIPRG (Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Reading Group), as far as we know the first Antipodean #LIS reading group on Twitter.
How to get involved?
We maintain the LARK blog where the group writes about research issues and findings. Visit our blog here.
We have a Facebook page and checkout the Twitter hashtag #LARK.
