Last call: career services survey for LIS students

  • 1.  Last call: career services survey for LIS students

    Posted Apr 22, 2024 02:16 PM

    Hi, everyone:

    This is a final call for participants in a study examining how graduate LIS programs support the career exploration and preparation of MLIS/MLS/MILS students. This project (funded by the ALISE Research Grant Competition) aims to: 1) to investigate current efforts to support graduate LIS students' career exploration and preparation; 2) to identify the services, resources, and programs desired by students; and 3) to identify programs that may serve as exemplars. This project will provide insight into whether and how LIS programs are preparing students to engage in job search and career transition processes and to meet the challenges of today's employment landscape. 

    If you are currently enrolled in a graduate LIS program (i.e., MLIS/MLS/MILS in any concentration), I invite you to participate by completing this anonymous online survey.

    Participation in this research study is completely voluntary. You can choose to leave the research study at any time. The only anticipated risk for participants is breach of confidentiality. The survey is anonymous unless the participant provides an email address.

    At the end of the survey, participants will have an opportunity to provide their email address to be entered into a drawing for 1 of 25 $25 gift cards.

    If you have any questions about this study, please contact me directly at This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at the University at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY, USA. 

    Thank you for your consideration.
