Call for Participants: Study on Student Shaming in Academic Libraries

via Lindsay Inge Carpenter, University of Maryland)

We are working on a research project investigating the topic of *student shaming among academic librarians*. We define student shaming as public or private mocking of specific students, students generally, or students’ work.

If you currently work in an academic library, we invite you to take this survey on your perceptions of the frequency of student shaming at your institution, in the profession, and in higher education more generally.

This anonymous survey consists of 5 multiple choice questions and one open-text response. Respondents are also invited to share their email if interested in participating in follow-up virtual interviews. *To access the survey, please visit: *

Thank you for your consideration, and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about this project.
