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.

Our usual modes of communication will reach those who are already members of the chapter – we need you to help us reach everyone!

The ACRL NEC Board has formed a task force to investigate how the chapter might better involve and meet the needs of three specific librarian populations: paraprofessionals in academic libraries, community college librarians, and library school students.  We are asking you to take the survey if you are a part of any of these populations or to please forward along the links to any coworkers or colleagues that you know who might be willing to provide us with feedback in this regard. The name of the target population is included in the URL for the survey.  We sent the surveys out through the ACRL NEC listserv and posted them on the ACRL NEC Facebook page so they should also be accessible there as well.

We thank you in advance for your help in this very important project.
