If you are a current or former academic GIS librarian, you are invited to participate in a survey titled “Involvement and Role of Academic GIS Librarians in Community-Engaged Scholarship Survey.” The study is being conducted by Charles Knight and Wade Bishop at the University of Tennessee School of Information Sciences.
The purpose of the research is to determine the involvement and role of academic GIS librarians in community-engaged scholarship (CES) projects. We want to gather information on whether and how many CES projects in which academic GIS librarians have been involved. Also, we want to understand the duration of and the amount of time spent on CES projects and whether academic libraries have provided resources for such projects. The survey will take up to 15 minutes. You will not be paid/compensated for your participation in this study. Thank you much for your consideration!
The survey will be open until November 30, 2023. The survey can be accessed here: https://utk.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9GCIIBhuEOXLn02
Academic GIS librarians: librarians providing information services (reference and instruction, data curation and management, digital scholarship, metadata and/or cataloging) for geographic/cartographic information and/or collections in colleges or universities.
Community-engaged scholarship (CES): the “collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity” (The Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, n.d., para. 1). Community engaged-scholarship may be known by other names, such as service learning, public scholarship, community-based participatory research, or in GIS contexts, public participatory GIS.
