Standpoint Epistemology as an Alternative Methodology for Library and Information Science.
Trosow, Samuel E.
Library Quarterly, v71 n3 p360-82 Jul 2001
A metatheoretical framework is reviewed, and the qualitative/quantitative dichotomy, prevalent in library and information science (LIS), is critiqued. Standpoint epistemology, as a critique of existing power-knowledge relationships, is discussed as a research strategy that can provide a starting point for re-conceptualizing LIS research. (AEF)
