A colleague of mine, Sarah Jones Cournoyer, and I have had a dream for the last few years: to head a center that facilitates research by and for public librarians. We thought we’d have to wait until we got our respective PhDs and somebody funded this. But why wait? Someone’s going to steal this idea if we don’t get busy, right?
So welcome to The Center for Public Library Research (CPLR). Hope you find it useful and will chime in as you think of research ideas, opportunities, or research you’ve found useful for public librarians.
