Faculty Perceptions of Loughborough's Online Reading List System (LORLS) at Dublin Business School (DBS)
O'Neill, Marie; Musto, Lara
New Review of Academic Librarianship, v23 n4 p353-376 2017
Using a mixed methods research approach this study explores faculty perceptions of LORLS at DBS. Data generated by the study will inform advocacy, marketing and training initiatives to promote the platform. The study concludes with a number of deductive and inductive findings. The first is that although DBS faculty are highly predisposed to using LORLS, there are a number of variables that impact its use that must be considered in the context of advocacy, marketing and training activities. Grounded theory analysis of the focus group data also revealed that faculty would like LORLS to have greater interoperability with the virtual learning environment (VLE) Moodle. A key output of the study is a LORLS Process Implementation Chart for proposed inclusion on the LORLS developers' implementation blog to assist other organizations with LORLS adoption. The chart synthesizes the key findings of the literature review and of the data generated in this study.
