Most widely held works by Peter Brophy
Narrative-based practice by Peter Brophy( )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The telling of stories lies at the heart of human communication. In this important new book, Peter Brophy introduces and explains the concept of story-telling or narrative-based practice in teaching, research, professional practice and organisations. He illustrates the deficiencies in evidence-based practice models, which focus on quantitative rather than qualitative evidence, and highlights the importance of narrative by drawing on insights from fields as disparate as pedagogy, anthropology, knowledge management and management practice. This book is not only essential reading for scholars and students of librarianship and information science but for other professionals currently widely using evidence-based practice such as those in health, social policy and general management."--Jacket

Libraries without walls 6 : evaluating the distributed delivery of library services by Libraries Without Walls Conference( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited collection is drawn from the sixth Libraries Without Walls Conference, held in 2005. From their beginnings in 1995, the Libraries Without Walls conferences have mapped a major change in the practice of librarianship. While library services are still concerned to provide users with physical access to their buildings, electronic access, often from remote locations, is becoming ever more dominant. Papers presented at previous LWW conferences have provided examples of how libraries are pushing out the frontiers of their services. In 2005 a different approach was taken. The question was asked, 'How do we know whether these new services are having a positive impact on our users?' In response, papers written by leading professionals worldwide followed these broad themes: theoretical approaches to the evaluation of the new services, with an emphasis on qualitative methods; the user experience: what do we know about the users of these services?; assessment of the usability, including the accessibility, of the services; measuring the outcomes and impact. These state-of-the-art papers will enable library managers and information professionals in all sectors to keep abreast of the latest developments in this vital area. The book will also assist educational specialists and course developers in increasing their understanding of the role and importance of information in the learning process
