Dear colleagues,Thank you to those who have already completed our survey. This is a reminder that there is still time to contribute to this study.
If you are a professional librarian currently working in a
public library in Atlantic Canada, you can help us learn more about the
hiring policies and practices in your library.
century provides many opportunities as well as challenges for the
evolution of public libraries in both a digital age, and in an era of
fiscal constraints. These opportunities and challenges have
implications for staffing. Our research will analyze, compare,
and evaluate human resource policies and practices regarding librarian
positions within selected Atlantic Canadian public libraries.
If you choose to participate, the link below will take you to
an online questionnaire, which will take 10-20 minutes to complete.
