Lou-Ellen Kiely is doing a dissertation project for the MSc Information and Library Management programme in Dublin Business School. The topic is “Autism Friendly Programmes in Irish Public Libraries: Considerations, Benefits and Challenges”.
As part of her research she would like to look at the various programmes being offered in public libraries in Ireland such as autism friendly hours, sensory programmes etc. She would like to see how these are funded, what are the challenges, is the service being used and what else can be done. She would also like to get people’s perception (good or bad) about the services offered in public libraries to people with autism. Once completed the findings from this research will be provided to several librarians that she is working with as part of the project.
