The Riverdale Public Library, a medium-sized library in a diverse suburban area, offers a wide range of resources and programs to support lifelong learning and community engagement.

Despite a rich array of services, the library faces declining visitor numbers and program participation. The library seeks to understand community needs better and enhance engagement, particularly among underrepresented groups within the suburban area.

To address this challenge, students are tasked with identifying an appropriate qualitative research method that will enable the library to deeply understand the barriers to community engagement and the needs of the community.

Qualitative ResearchMethods

With over 40 markets of library users, the need is there.

There are 15 branch locations in the city.

The 15 locations have over 1,000 resources each. That is over 15,000 combined resources.

Nearly 100 employees work in these libraries.

Qualitative ResearchMethods

This case study encourages students to apply qualitative research methods to a real-world problem, enhancing their understanding of the nuances and complexities involved in community-oriented research.

Students must decide between methods such as ethnographic studies, in-depth interviews, focus groups, or participatory action research (PAR). Each method has its strengths in uncovering rich, detailed insigh

This plan should consider ethical considerations, particularly consent and confidentiality.

Students should also hypothesize potential barriers to engagement and suggest strategies the library can use to overcome these barriers.

The reflection should include implications for further consider, implications for practice, and implications for policy.
