Surveys: Task Force on Under Served Populations

The ACRL New England Chapter is interested in finding out more about some of our most underserved populations and we are hoping that you will complete this survey if it applies to you, or forward it to fellow staff members, colleagues at other institutions, or library school students that you know.
