A friend just directed me to this article: G. Hunter and D. Ward, “Students research the library: Using student-led ethnographic research to examine the changing role of campus libraries” College & Research Libraries News, vol. 72, May. 2011, pp. 264 -268.
Great article! Great project. To follow-up on my blog entry yesterday, I wanted to add that the co-PI is an anthropology graduate student, Marcel LaFlamme. The cool thing is, he used to be a librarian, but has now gone back to graduate school for anthropology. While his research focus is not on libraries, he is a great asset to have on our projects! So, yes, include students in ethnographic research on both sides!
