Diversity in the Nebraska library workplace survey

survey iconIf you’ve got a few minutes please consider helping out one of my colleagues with her survey.


We’d like your input on diversity in the library workplace for our research. We have a short survey that we hope you will complete. Questions focus on your own experiences learning about and working with diversity.

The survey is completely anonymous, and your results will be kept confidential. We will report aggregated results, to ensure that no one librarian can be identified. At the end of the survey, you may choose to participate in a follow-up interview. If you provide your name and email address at that time, your responses to this survey will then be considered confidential. If you do not provide your name and email address and instead telephone or email the interviewer separately, your responses to the survey will be completely anonymous.

We anticipate using these results to provide support to LIS educators and associations in supporting diversity efforts.

Please also consider forwarding this message to your co-workers, so that we may hear from even more people in the field.

Thank you in advance for your response.
