Share your research story!

We need your help to learn about research in the Australian library and information profession.

All Australian library and information science practitioners are invited to participate in an online survey that will explore your research experiences.

By learning more about your experiences we can explore how a research culture can be encouraged and enabled within the Australian LIS profession.

The online survey is estimated to take 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

Your participation is completely anonymous and confidential.

You will be asked to reflect upon your experiences with research, including your capacity and motivations to undertake research, value and impact of research on your professional practice and the LIS profession and the extent to which common barriers impact on your engagement with research.

If you are interested in taking part, please click here. 

Your involvement in this project will be significant for the future of the LIS profession in Australia, and we wish to thank you in advance for your time and participation.

The survey will be available until 24th December 2016! (extension!)
