The purpose of this study is to better understand the user services that are offered at library high density storage facilities and how those services may have been impacted by the pandemic. The study seeks participation from librarians who are involved in library storage as part of their work.

     

    The Survey

    The online survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete, and it will remain open until November 19. You can access the survey here: https://illinoislib.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_24yLyMQaxp882DY


    Questions

    If you have questions about the survey, please contact Jennifer Maddox Abbott, Collection Management Librarian, at maddox5@illinois.edu.


    Participation is voluntary and participants will remain anonymous. No identifying information will be collected that could connect an individual with their survey responses. Raw data will only be accessible to the project investigator. The survey results will be used in an aggregate manner when disseminated in publications or presentations.
