“Help us help you!”
“Please complete this survey for our forthcoming book on library-social work collaboration by Saturday, April 22, 2017:
Completing this survey will:
- Tell us what librarians and social workers already know (or don’t know) about library-social work collaboration, so we can shape the content of the book to your needs.
- Give you a frame for self-assessment: your answers can point you to where you can learn more.
- Provide the opportunity for you to connect with us and share your library’s story in a case study (optional).
Please see this letter for more information on the survey. The book on Whole Person Librarianship will be published by Libraries Unlimited, likely in 2019.
Please email us if you have any questions. Thanks for your help!”
