Abstract

This article focuses on action research as a research design approach for Masters studies in information science and the various research methods that support and assist the research process. In this case, action research acts as a framework to guide the research and allows integration between theory, research and practice. It allows research that is simultaneously explorative, investigative, participative and contextual. A defining characteristic of this type of research is the opportunities it provides researchers to reflect continuously and systematically on their practice. The research is embedded in a longitudinal Literacy Project in two disadvantaged primary schools with specific reference to setting up and supporting school libraries.
