We are working on a research study that examines the experiences of individuals who have held temporary contract positions in academic libraries. The purpose of the research is to investigate the demographics and career paths of those academic librarians engaged in contract work in Canada and their experiences in these positions regarding training, socialization, and supervision/mentorship. The study will also zero in on how COVID-19 has affected the working lives of librarians holding temporary contracts in academic libraries. 

If you have held a temporary contract position as an academic librarian in Canada during your career, we invite you to participate in an anonymous online survey. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Please follow this link to participate in the survey. The survey will be open until Monday, September 13. 

If you have questions, please contact the researchers, Lindsay McNiff, Learning & Instruction Librarian, Dalhousie University ([log in to unmask]or Nicole Carter, Librarian, Reference & Research, Saint Mary’s University ([log in to unmask]).  

 If you have any ethical concerns about this research or your participation in this research, you may also contact Research Ethics, Dalhousie University at (902) 494-1462, or email: [log in to unmask]. In doing so, please reference REB file #2021-5565.
