Attention Children’s Librarians with an MLS degree:

I just received the following email from an MLS student conducting a research project on how well an MLS degree prepares children’s librarians. If you are interested in sharing how well your MLS coursework and degree prepared you for your job, please take this survey. There are only 12 questions and it should take no more than 10 minutes (it took me 7 mins) to complete. Here is the link to the survey: https://qtrial.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_bqiTxffpnuatX3m

Thank you,

Subject: Children's Librarian Survey-Please participate!

Dear Children’s Librarian,

I am a graduate student in the Master of Library Science program at Southern Connecticut State University.  I am engaged in a research project entitled:
“The Instructional Responsibilities of Public Library Children’s Librarians:
Are They Well Prepared by the Master of Library Science/Master of Information & Library Science Degree?”

I am inviting your participation in a survey I have developed and posted online.  It is a short, 12-question survey that should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.  The purpose of the survey is to determine the variety of instructional activities performed by children’s librarians and their sense of whether or not their degree has prepared them well.  The results of the study will inform practitioners and educators of any knowledge gaps.  A final report will be posted to participating Listservs upon completion.

Your participation in the survey is voluntary.  Refusal to participate will involve no penalty or loss of benefits to which you, as a participant, would otherwise be entitled.  You may discontinue your participation at any time without penalty or loss of benefits.  Survey responses are anonymous and no names or email addresses will be collected.  If you have any questions about the survey or the research please contact me at Mantza1 at owls.southernct.edu<mailto:Mantza1 at owls.southernct.edu>.  Questions about research participants’ rights may be directed to the SCSU Human Research Protection Program at 203-392-5243.

Please access the survey through this link.  https://qtrial.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_bqiTxffpnuatX3m  The survey will be available for two weeks.  Your completion of the survey indicates your consent for your data to be used in this research.

Thank you for your time and thoughtful participation.
