Are you a librarian who creates online tutorials for your library?

Librarians are needed to participate in a focus group about the tutorial-creation process, as a part of a CARLI COUNTS research project. Focus groups will be virtual and should last between an hour-and-a-half and two hours. More information on CARLI COUNTS is available here.

If you are interested in participating, please fill out the form at the Selection Survey link. Should you have any questions about the form or difficulty in accessing the form online, please contact Loren Mixon, at lmixon@kcc.edu.

I’m conducting research on the perceptions of shared leadership and strategic planning in academic libraries. If you work in an academic library in any position I would love to hear from you about decision making, planning, and leadership in your library. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete, and will ask for your perceptions about working in your library. All survey responses will be anonymous and no personally identifiable information will be collected.

To access the survey, please go here.

Please feel free to contact me, at laura.krier@sonoma.edu, if you have any questions.

We invite employees at academic libraries to participate in a brief (10 minute), anonymous survey titled, “Faculty Preferences for Communicating with Library Employees About Collections”. Our goal is to develop advice for libraries that want to obtain input from non-library faculty in order to help them make collections-related decisions.

To access the survey, please go here.

This study has been approved by Kansas State University’s IRB Board.

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

I am currently enrolled in a Human Information Behavior graduate seminar at the University of Missouri. As a part of the course, I am conducting an exploratory research study on open science and scholarship, especially as they relate to reproducibility, along with trends in librarian and faculty collaboration.

I am seeking to interview academic librarians who have experience with, and are currently helping implement these principles into, undergraduate teaching.

If you are working at an institution that has embedded open science and scholarship, especially as they relate to reproducibility, into teaching as a core component; or if you collaborate with faculty to curate material, co-teach, or create other support related to open science and reproducibility; please respond to the survey link below to include your contact preferences, and I will be in contact with you with further information regarding the study. If you know someone who may be interested, please feel free to share this information with that person.

The interviews will be conducted in Zoom, which is expected to last 60-90 minutes, and they will also be recorded. Once the recording is transcribed and analyzed, the recordings will be deleted. Once the research is completed and published, no one will be able to identify you in the study.

I have obtained Institutional Research Board (IRB) approval for this study, and participation is entirely voluntary. Participants may withdraw from the study at any point.

To access the survey, please go here.

I am conducting a survey with Dr. Emily Knox at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s School of Information Sciences. The survey focuses on library services for sexual and reproductive health information.

If you are a public librarian in the United States, I would be so honored if you could take 10-15 minutes to fill out this survey. I would also be so grateful if you could forward this survey to any other public librarians in your network.

The information collected in this survey is totally anonymous, and no identifiable information is collected. The results from this survey may be published in journals, professional publications, or educational presentations.

Thank you for considering participating.

  • How does the health science librarian support LGBTQ+ students, residents, fellows, and faculty?

Eligibility: You are a health science librarian at either an academic institution (e.g., university, college), or a non-academic institution (e.g., community health center, hospital) serving health science students, residents, fellows, or faculty (clinical or non-clinical).

(via Gwen Gregory, IACRL Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee Co-Chair)

The IACRL Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee wants to assist the IACRL (Illinois Association of College & Research Libraries) community in its endeavors to make academic libraries in Illinois diverse, equitable, and inclusive, but we can best do that when we fully understand the needs of the community.

To serve you better, the Task Force has developed an anonymous feedback form that will allow members to provide suggestions, make recommendations for resources and trainings, and offer a platform for sharing ideas and posing questions related to DEI. Please share your insights and concerns so we can support you in your efforts.
