Call for Participation: Survey on “The Matter of Collegiality in Librarian Promotion and Tenure” (Closes Thurs., Sept. 30)

(via Jason Coleman, Kansas State University)

You are invited to participate ​in a research survey titled, “The Matter of Collegiality in Librarian Promotion and Tenure”. The goal for this survey is to examine the prevalence, expression, and attitude towards the use of “collegiality” in the academic librarian promotion and tenure process. We are recruiting current tenured/tenure-track librarians for this study. 

You may not experience a direct benefit from participating in this survey, but your participation will hopefully provide a scientifically based set of guidelines for the use of “collegiality” in the promotion and tenure process.

If you choose to participate, it is anticipated that the survey will take approximately 15 minutes. This survey is anonymous, as you will not be required to provide your name or other identifiable information. However, if you are open to participating in follow up studies, there is an option for you to provide your e-mail address. Your e-mail, if provided, will not be linked to your survey responses.

This study has been approved by the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville IRB Board.

To access the survey, please go here. The deadline to participate is Thursday, September 30, at 10:59 PM CDT.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the researchers.
