    Apologies for cross-posting!

    Hello! This is the final call for responses to take the survey over the impact of COVID-19 on technical services units and tasks. This survey is open to library employees working in the United States who are a member of a technical services unit or a role that completes technical services tasks (e.g. school librarians who do the cataloging and processing of items for their libraries).

    This study aims to learn more about the changes that occurred or did not occur as a direct result of COVID-19. The survey link and responses are confidential, and there is no way to trace responses back to you or your institution. The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete and will be open until January 1, 2022.

    Please contact Elizabeth Szkirpan at with any questions or concerns.
