Dear colleagues,

My name is Lili Luo from the School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University. I’m conducting a survey study to explore the value of research methods education to LIS professionals. I’d greatly appreciate it if you can take 5 to 8 minutes to complete the survey.

The survey study seeks to understand how librarians apply research skill in their workplaces and how education/training in research methods can help them with their work. Results from the study will further the understanding of practitioner research and will bridge the gap between research and practice.

The survey is anonymous and participation in the survey is entirely voluntary. By clicking the link below and completing the survey, you are consenting to participate in this study:


The survey will be available till Oct 22, and again, your participation is very much appreciated! Please contact me at lililuo@slis.sjsu.edu if you have any questions regarding the survey.

Thank you very much!
