442RE: [ccaomlcaom] item for chicago meeting: mixed method research
- Mar 26, 2012
What is the agenda item? Why are we looking at these two research methods? Are we looking to compare the two methods to evaluate a library? Is the discussion just to educate us on the types of survey methods we could/should use? I would not think it to our advantage to have an accrediting body tell us which type of survey to use. :-)

In PubMed, "mixed methods" is keyword only; qualitative research is a MeSH term. I believe mixed method research is a promising approach to examining the efficacy of OM.
