‘Success in research, at both national and institutional levels, depends critically on the quality of the information services to which researchers have access.’
- To what extent are library and information services at Stirling responding to the needs of researchers?
- What are the priorities for development?

[‘The RIN is sponsored by the four HE funding bodies, the three national libraries, and the four research councils. Its fundamental role is to undertake evidence-based research into information and data issues that relate to professional researchers – and particularly academic researchers – and to develop policy, guidance and advocacy on that basis’.
