Infopeople needs your help! We develop our annual continuing education/professional development (CE/PD) program in response to needs identified by the library community. We feel it is important for us to hear from as many library directors, managers, supervisors, and staff members as possible.
We have developed this online survey that asks some general questions and also seeks to assess interest in a wide variety of possible CE/PD options. Your responses will help us develop the 2017/2018 plan of service that best meets your needs. Thanks in advance for your assistance! Continue reading Share your opinion on Infopeople classes!
Does your library use Digital Learning Objects (videos, podcasts, tutorials, etc.) as part of your instruction program? We are interested in what motivates the decision to re-use an existing DLO or to create a new one, and we’d love to hear from you. We are running a survey aimed at anyone involved with developing or using DLOs for library instruction. This survey should not take longer than 30 minutes and has been IRB approved by Marquette University (WI). You can find the survey at the following link: https://marquette.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9ExZNzKZMZ1ulKd
This survey will close on March 31, 2017.
If you have any questions about this research project, please contact Heather James (email@example.com), Elizabeth Gibes (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Eric Kowalik (email@example.com).

I serve on the University of Northern Iowa Library Data Services Task Force, which has been charged with investigating what types of research data services are being offered at other libraries to help determine what library services should be offered at our institution. A single response per institution will suffice for our needs.
Please complete the short Library Research Data Services (RDS) Survey by March 24, 2017.
If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you in advance for taking the time to consider my questions.

While not a library survey, this second grade class found lots of willing participants in their online survey.
“Please help our class as we study surveys and graphs. We would love to see how many responses we can get and all of the different places our responses come from. Each student in our class has created one of the questions in this survey.”
Their survey is now closed, but we’re sure they received lots of good data to work with!
Do you work with a group, second graders or not, who need some lovely library responses?? Send it in, and we will post your survey here!

ACRL OCLC Research Agenda Project
OCLC is working with the American Library Association, Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) to develop a research agenda for student learning and success. The agenda is based on a literature review of library and information science (LIS) and higher education documents together with interviews of academic library administrators and representatives from provost offices at academic institutions within the US. Part of the project includes a visualization tool to search the reviewed literature and to create visualizations. Continue reading OCLC and ACRL: Visualization tool evaluation
