Research and Survey Opportunity: Temporary Caregivers and the Children in their Care: Fostering an Engaging and Supportive Library Environment
March 12, 2021
Could you spare 10 minutes to answer a survey and help us learn more about how public libraries can support temporary caregivers and the child(ren) in their care?
The research project is called “Temporary Caregivers and the Children in Their Care: Fostering an Engaging and Supportive Library Environment” and is being conducted by Miranda Angelski and Katie Kehoe, graduate students at the School of Information Management at Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS. We hope to identify the unique assets, interests, and struggles temporary caregivers and the children they support experience, and how public libraries can provide responsive, meaningful services.
The invitation to complete this survey is open to public library staff in Canada. The online survey must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. AST on March 26th, 2021. By participating in this study, Katie and Miranda will benefit from the experience of conducting a research study to complete their degree requirements. As an added benefit, we hope to identify ways that public libraries can create and sustain more inclusive, responsive services.
We would be happy to answer any questions or concerns now and at any point. We can be reached at email@example.com. The research project is being completed under the supervision of Alison Brown, who can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
