The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate alternative strategies to enhance participant interaction in library focus groups.
Descriptive alternatives strategies are suggested as techniques to enhance participant interaction in library focus groups.
There are no findings as such, rather this is a paper which suggests different approaches than have hitherto be tried in library focus groups.
There has not been a similar article or set of proposed alternative strategies on this subject in so far as library focus groups are concerned.
