Dear Participant:

We are medical librarians who are conducting research on the publication and presentation habits of medical/health sciences librarians. Skye Bickett is a librarian at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Suwanee, GA; Christine Willis is a librarian at the Noble Learning Resource Center at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA; Melissa Wright is a reference librarian at Rowland Medical library at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. We are conducting a research study to investigate the types of publications and presentations that medical librarians are currently doing and the factors which influence their decision to conduct and publish and present research.

You are being invited to participate in this study because you currently serve as a medical or health sciences librarian. If you agree to participate, you will complete a questionnaire about the publication and conference presentations of your research in the field of medical librarianship. It should take no longer than 15-20 minutes of your time. Your participation is voluntary. If you choose not to participate or to withdraw from the study at any time, there will be no penalty. The questionnaire is anonymous. The results of the study may be published, but your name will not be known.

The link to the questionnaire is https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?pli=1&formkey=dE1BanMwa29GTnNQTVQtWlJGc0pxV0E6MQ#gid=0
