What Previous IRDL Scholars Had To Say

“If I had to say one word about IRDL, it would be ’empowering.’ I feel so much more knowledgeable reading articles, judging the quality of surveys that come through, and contemplating new research projects.”

“I feel so much better equipped to do my job after IRDL. I have gained greater understanding of the methods researchers use and I know how to effectively gather data to influence and shape the future of libraries.”

“IRDL’s expert instructors provided the training I needed to jump-start my research agenda. I now have the skills needed to rigorously investigate any research question I have.”
