My name is Amanda Y. Makula. I am a faculty member at Copley Library at the University of San Diego, San Diego, CA. My co-investigator Laura S. Turner and I are conducting a research study funded by an ACRL Scholarly Communications Research Grant (http://www.ala.org/acrl/awards/researchawards/scholcommgrants) and we would like to invite you to participate if you work in an academic library. We plan to publish the results of this research and share the results at a professional library conference.
The purpose of this study is to learn if and why academic libraries and their archives are intentionally collecting, curating, and/or preserving materials — of any type — created or owned by their local public community.
There is no compensation for taking part in this survey, but you will have the opportunity at the end of the survey to provide your e-mail address to be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card.
For full information and to begin the survey, please click: http://usd.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5mD66ktTsXNalM1.
The survey will close at midnight on Friday, Jan. 31.
Thank you for your time.
