Determinants of Evidence Use in Academic Librarian Decision Making
Koufogiannakis, Denise
College & Research Libraries, v76 n1 p100-114 Jan 2015
The objective of this qualitative study was to identify and explain challenges encountered by academic librarians when trying to incorporate evidence into their practice. The findings resulted in the identification of five main determinants that act as either obstacles or enablers of evidence use. The identification of these determinants provide librarians with a greater understanding of the complex processes and individual as well as organizational factors that impact decision-making processes within academic libraries.
