Title: Exploratory study on social workers and Canadian public libraries
Investigators: Liz Schweizer (Master of Social Work thesis student); Dr. Jessica Ayala (Supervisor) - Faculty of Social Work, University of Calgary
You are invited to complete an online survey about your perspectives on the topic of social workers and Canadian public libraries. It has been sent to public library staff across Canada to gain an understanding of this emerging trend and to help provide contextual information for a case study that will follow. You do not need to be a social worker or work in a public library that currently employs social workers in order to participate.
This survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete. Please feel free to forward to your Canadian networks.
It will remain open until August 11, 2017.
