In a focused effort to take the next step into becoming a practitioner-researcher, Liz began the online training for Institutional Review Board (IRB) Approval certification in the Summer of 2017. In addition, she is currently working out the details for an original research project to include in her application for the 2018 Institute for Research Design in Librarianship (IRDL).
Liz attended these recent conference sessions/workshops, to gain a further understanding of the underlying issues that other practitioner-researchers face in the library field:
