On behalf of REFORMA, the National Association to Promote Library and Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish Speaking, thank you for your interest in this survey.

This survey is part of the project entitled “Telling Our Stories: Community Building and Leadership, Recruit and Retain Latinx to the Library Profession”. Funded by an IMLS grant (RE-00-17-0130-17), this study aims to identify challenges and highlight the experiences of librarians of color, particularly as it relates to retention and promotion. Our focus is to capture data to strengthen support for current and prospective Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) throughout the library field.

​We invite adults who have completed an MLIS and identify as a person of color to participate in this study. The survey is expected to take 20 minutes to complete. Your participation in this research is completely voluntary.  All data collected will remain anonymous and confidential. Participants will have the option to contribute to a 30-minute follow-up study for which there is an incentive.

We invite you to participate in this survey on employment and job seeking experiences of BIPOC librarians and fill out the form by Wednesday, July 14.
