LISNews reports that Kathryn Kennedy at the University of Florida is seeking participants for a survey on "perceptions and prejudices of online degrees in the hiring process in academic libraries. The papers that we have seen in publication about this subject have been broad, covering employment in academic libraries but also in public libraries and school media centers. In our study, we are narrowing the focus to include only academic libraries. We are surveying ARL Libraries and MLS/MLIS degree programs, and our survey solicits input from the following people:
1. Current Library Science students;
2. Recent graduates who found jobs;
3. Recent graduates searching for jobs; and
4. Employers and people who have participated on hiring committees for professional librarian positions.
If you're one of the above, please take the survey.
