Call for Participation: National Survey of French Language Collection Development in Public Libraries in Minority Language Settings
February 12, 2021
We are inviting you to participate in a national survey of French language collection development in public libraries in a linguistic minority situation.
We are conducting the survey to bring a new disciplinary understanding of an area of professional work that has not previously been studied and to identify success factors that might aid libraries in future collection development decisions. The results of the survey will be published as a scholarly article in an open-access peer-reviewed disciplinary journal.
This Qualtrics survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. At any time during the study, you can withdraw by simply exiting your browser. Responses are anonymous, but results will be aggregated for reporting purposes. No identifying information will be collected.
The researchers are: Céline Gareau-Brennan and Sarah Shaughnessy (University of Alberta), Hélène Carrier and Catherine Lachaîne (University of Ottawa); they can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. The researchers are members of Library and Archives Canada’s Official-Language Minority Communities (OLMCs) Network.
If you are willing, please consider sharing this survey and attached statement of informed consent by March 31st, 2021 with librarians and employees of public libraries in Canada with responsibilities for developing collections in French in a linguistic minority situation.
