We invite you to participate in the following survey about the ways in which academic libraries have responded to the increased need for information literacy skills instruction during an era of great change in how information is accessed and used. Results from the survey will identify patterns of library practice related to increasing instructional duties and expanded librarian roles to encompass instruction. We are interested in perspectives from librarians at all stages of their careers and in all positions, so your participation is greatly appreciated. The survey should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete. Please feel free to forward this survey, as we are interested in hearing from a broad span of librarians.
