“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!”

I am revising the book Makerspaces: A Practical Guide for Librarians and I’m conducting a survey of the field.
If you would please take a moment to answer this brief 15-question survey about libraries with makerspaces it would be very helpful. Thank you!”
“Please consider contributing to what we feel is an important and timely research project by taking a survey on human-based research and user data collection in ARL academic libraries.
The survey is open to all professional-level library employees regardless of appointment status, job type or educational credential – a diverse data pool is key to our query! ”

“The YALSA Legislation Committee wonders if you would share an example of a time you helped mobilize teen participation for a social justice or advocacy cause. We’re collecting examples!
It could be an example of a time you encouraged high schoolers to write a letter to their school board, or an example of the time you took a group of teens to your local representative’s office to advocate for library funding.
We want to know what you did, how, and why!
It’s quick, easy, and painless! Fill out this brief form and be forever in our gratitude: https://goo.gl/forms/oqYLEZAd9C3maqII2“
The joint ALA/SAA/AAM Committee on Archives, Libraries, and Museums (CALM) needs your help!
In the spirit of true inclusion we are seeking your thoughts on the current state of inclusion in libraries, archives, and museums (LAMS).
In preparation for our annual programs at ALA and SAA we are soliciting the CALM listserv for assistance in compiling questions about the current state of inclusion in LAMS. At both programs we will engage six different panelists about the issues and challenges surrounding inclusion in LAMs and how well we are doing (or not doing) in addressing them.
What are the biggest roadblocks or obstacles to creating inclusive environments and what are some examples within your own community (even if not within your own organization)? Do you have a specific question that you would like to see addressed during the sessions?
Please send feedback to CALM co-chairs, Elizabeth Call (ALA) and Lynette Stoudt (SAA). We look forward to hearing from you by Friday, April 14!
