We are reaching out to former social work library interns* across the United States to invite them to participate in a confidential, anonymous, electronic survey about their experience with social work-library partnerships. This is an IRB approved study, the findings of which will be used in publications and presentations.
*To supervisors of social work interns or librarians who worked with interns: We encourage you to forward this message to former interns who you think may be interested in participating in our study.
Our research aims to unearth former interns' perspectives about what worked regarding their library field placements, what didn't, and how their experiences may have influenced their paths as professional social workers.
It should take approximately 15-25 minutes to complete. We are hoping to have the surveys completed by November 16th. Here is the link to the Qualtrics survey: Library SW Interns Survey.
If you have questions, please contact Sarah Johnson.
Thank you for your interest in this project.
