I love psychologists!

Not literally – as I think my wife would be that impressed! I refer to the psychologists I've been working with this morning as part of the 2nd phase of a project with Martin Skinner's 2nd year social psychology students. We've been looking at reading lists, students’ perceptions & reactions, as well as dipping into their confidence with searching skills.

1stly Martin's level of co-operation and facilitation of my work has been pretty much second to none. Not only does he let me pop into his lecture today at the start to hand out questionnaires, he enthuses about what we're doing and made his students fill them in whilst I waited. He is a star! I think he’s going to become the model level of co-operation we expect from academics when we do this sort of work – if they want it to be successful and representative.

2ndly the students were great as they co-operated and dutifully filled the questions in. Ok this time there was no incentive (thanks to a debatable policy on the matter in house) just working for the greater good. However, without the willingness of the students to participate I'd have no data to work on.

I know I used to be a Psychology subject specialist at the Uni of York and I'm probably biased, but they remain just about my favourite department and student body to work with. Wonder if they need an on-site library & information specialist for reasonable pay?

If you're a second year undergaduate psychology student and wanted to take part in this project survey - drop me an email or pop into the RIU office on the third floor and pick up a survey form. Likewise if you've filled one in and had a comment you forgot to add to the sheet, please do get in touch - your opinions are always welcomed!

It made a nice break from reading list analysis I can certainly say too! And this afternoon interviews in the Grid – joy! :)
