Abstract

This research describes library research in English education research as a guide for researchers in writing non-research articles. Library research is a qualitative research activity that collects information and data from various materials in a library, such as books, articles, notes, and journals. It is conducted systematically to find answers to problems encountered and can be conducted in the library or elsewhere. The content of library research can be theoretical studies, focusing on problem-solving. Researchers must follow library guidelines and comply with the library's guidelines to find temporary answers. The value of a library depends on its novelty and literature publication. Library research is a crucial method for researchers to access rich information, build a strong knowledge base, gain diverse perspectives, and support critical thinking. It involves collecting data from various sources, such as reference books, previous research results, articles, notes, and journals, to gain a comprehensive understanding of the research topic. Data collection in library research is carried out through searching, selection, and analysis of various literature sources relevant to the research topic. Collecting document data is an important foundation for building solid and relevant library research. By carefully selecting and analyzing documents, researchers can make meaningful contributions to the literature and understanding of knowledge in their field of study. After collecting data from related sources (documents), the result can be analyzed. Data analysis methods in library research include thematic analysis, content analysis, conceptual, comparative, historical, theoretical, systematic, and integrated overall technical data analysis. By applying appropriate data analysis, library research can make a significant contribution to the scientific literature and produce a deeper understanding of the research topic. However, the use of library research can involve technical problems, limitations in external validity, and risk of bias. Researchers should avoid using less reliable sources, lack insight into the themes studied, and not well-systemize systematic discussions. Library research should be conducted independently or as an initial stage in broader research to identify research gaps, develop a theoretical framework, and determine future research methods. When choosing library research, we can consider the research purposes, research question, resources, inclusion and exclusion criteria, search method, literature quality, organizing system, sustainability of literature monitoring, historical and theoretical context, validation and credibility, synthesis and analysis, and method suitability. Besides, we also consider clearly defining research objectives, developing specific research questions, choosing relevant literature sources, establishing inclusion and exclusion criteria, designing a systematic literature search strategy, evaluating literature quality, determining the organizing system, planning for ongoing literature monitoring, considering historical and theoretical context, verify the validity of the source, plan for synthesis and analysis, and ensure the library research method is appropriate for the research type.
