You are invited to participate in a survey about accessibility as a factor in acquisition/selection practice in academic libraries in Manitoba, Nova Scotia, and Ontario. The purpose of this research is to explore if and how selectors use accessibility when making acquisition decisions. This study is open to individuals who have selection responsibilities as part of their work in an academic library in Manitoba, Nova Scotia, or Ontario. Since there is almost no literature on the use of accessibility in the selection process, this study seeks to fill this gap.


This research is being conducted by Agnieszka Hayes ([log in to unmask]), Academic Librarian at Acadia University. This study has been approved by the Acadia University Research Ethics Board (REB). Participation in the study will take approximately 10-15 minutes and will consist of selecting responses from multiple choice options and, if applicable, writing short answers. The survey will close on November 25, 2022.
