Digitised chapters

The library has now digitised a couple of very useful chapters for the independent study unit. These can be viewed online or printed. The links below take you to the library website. Log in using your account number and you will be automatically taken to a .pdf of the chapter.

Brown, A. J. and Dowling, P. C – Experience and Observation

This chapter looks at ways of collecting data. Issue covered include sampling, correlation, ethnographic field notes, and representation. A very useful chapter for those who will be using experience and observation as research methods.

Denzin, N. K and Lincoln, Y. S. – Introduction: Entering the field of qualitative research

A very comprehensive introduction to qualitative research. It looks at definitions of qualitative research, its history, key issues, and future directions. I would really recommend anyone thinking of doing qualitative research during their independent study project to spend some time with this chapter.
