Librarians and the synthesis and analysis of Information

Dear Respondent,

I am inviting you to participate in a research project to study the involvement of business and industry librarians in the analysis and synthesis of information.  The following link will take you to a brief survey that asks a variety of questions about this. 

Survey Link: <> 

I am asking you to have a look at this questionnaire and, if you choose to do so, complete it and submit the results by October 31, 2007.  It should take you about twenty minutes to complete and no personal information will be gathered unless you decide to provide your contact information for a follow-up interview.

The results of this project and survey are to fulfill the requirements of the thesis stage of the Masters of Information and Library Science program in Aberdeen Business School at The Robert Gordon University. I do not know of any risks to you if you decide to participate in this survey and I guarantee that your responses will not be identified with you personally.  I promise not to share any information that identifies you.  

I hope that you will take the time to complete this questionnaire and submit it.  Regardless of whether you choose to participate, please let me know if you would like a summary of my findings.  To receive a summary, you send me an e-mail requesting same at [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> .

If you have any questions or concerns about completing the questionnaire or about being in this study, you may contact me at [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> . The ethics review board at the Robert Gordon University has approved this project.

 Thank you very much for your time.
