    Jennifer,

    How long is the window open for this survey, and can LIS students participate?  I teach in quarters and have an IF class that starts the last week of March.

    Hello Sabrina!

    The survey is open for another two weeks, and is really geared toward library professionals who deal with issues related to privacy standards as part of their job.

    Best,
    Jennifer
