Participants wanted: Study on IM and roles of librarians and information managers
Posted by CLA Govt Library and Info Mgmt Professionals Network on 2012/06/20
Supported by Ulla de Stricker – well known for her work in knowledge management – I am conducting a sabbatical study on Information Management and the Roles of Librarians and Information Managers in IM within the Canadian Federal Government. A key element in this study is “field observation” on (1) the day to day activities related to information acquisition, sharing, and storage, and (2) roles of librarians and IM professionals in supporting information management, now and in the future.
I would be grateful for your assistance in sharing your observations in a session that will take 30-45 minutes at most. Librarians, Information Managers and similar professionals having experience with the federal government and its agencies are invited to participate.
Your participation in this study is purely voluntary. Only the researchers will see your individual answers. Responses are anonymised and stored on a secure, password-protected server. They will be cumulated when I report the results so that no participant or small group can be uniquely identified. The Appendix will simply contain a list of departments that participated.
The study has been reviewed and approved by the Carleton University Research Ethics Board (613-520-2517 or email@example.com).
For more information or to volunteer for the study, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
