5 … because good research needs good data DAF at KeepIt Digital preservation tools for repositories, 19/01/10, Southampton Methods for collecting information Desk-based research Good for initial planning stage and to collate background information Remote access to data a challenge and could be hard to understand. TIP: use PhD students Survey questionnaires Good for collecting basic overview and to obtain wide participation Can be useful to identify potential interviewees Uptake can be low – best if pushed by internal advocate Make sure software meets needs. TIP: Use Bristol Online Surveys Data interviews Interviews Provide best quality information – ability to develop questions to follow up on key points Allow you to gauge awareness of data issues better Very time consuming – TIP: one person to interview and one to note-take. Lifecycle model can provide useful framework to guide discussion. Focus groups Good for reaching consensus and developing ideas May be difficult to set up. TIP: Work through local advocates. also information lab notebooks as used in RIN case studies
