  • 1.  Last Call: Survey exploring FedLib LibGuide use during COVID-19

    Posted 10-13-2020 08:38

    Dear Colleagues,

    You are invited to participate in a survey about Federal Library efforts to collect and disseminate information on SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 using LibGuides. We hope to garner a better understanding of how librarians serving the Federal workforce curate, share, and update pandemic information to best fit their patrons' needs and interests. The results will be reviewed to determine recommendations for future information sharing during public health emergencies. Results will also be presented at a future conference and/or published.

    Your participation in this research project and survey is confidential and voluntary. The project was reviewed and exempted by the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's Institutional Review Board (WRNMMC-EDO-2020-0535; 927350) and the Defense Health Agency [DoD Survey License Exemption (#9)-Exempt #0053].

    The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. It is open until Friday, October 16, 2020 and is available using the following link:

    Please share broadly with other Federal Libraries and Federal Librarians; Government Employees and Contractors are encouraged to respond.

    If you have any questions or comments, please contact:

    Thank you for your time!
