Recent Research from Irish Libraries

There has been some interesting research published from an Irish LIS perspective of late. Below are a few of the articles I have come across recently. Apologies, if I have left anyone out; it is completely inadvertent! Send me a tweet @libfocus and I will add the reference to the list below. Please forgive the self-promotion by including my own also :). If anyone would like to contribute a guest blog post about recent, ongoing or future research, just get in touch with us at libfocusguestpost at gmail.com or through twitter.
