Survey on Engagement of New Library Professionals in Leadership

Kathleen DeLong, a librarian at the University of Alberta, is conducting a survey on the engagement of new library professionals in leadership roles and activities as part of her LIS PhD. 

If you're a recently hired librarian (within the last five years), why not take a few minutes to help her out by filling out this quick survey.

Here is some more information from Kathleen:

This is your invitation to participate in a web survey on leadership engagement of new library professionals. The survey is directed to new professionals who have worked for five years or less since graduating with a Masters degree in Librarianship (graduated in years 2000 to 2007). The survey data is being collected for purposes of a study carried out in fulfillment of requirements for the PhD Managerial Leadership in the Information Professions programs at the Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science in Boston, MA.

The short survey (shouldn't take more than 15 minutes) probes various factors associated with leadership engagement of new professionals in Canadian libraries. It is your choice whether or not you wish to participate in the survey, participation is entirely voluntary. You can terminate the survey at any time by closing your browser. There will be no penalty or consequence for doing so.

Responses are anonymous and data will be reported without any identifying characteristics.

This survey has been approved by the Simmons College Institutional Review Board. Although I am professionally affiliated with the University of Alberta, this survey is not related to my work with the University of Alberta Libraries.
