Call for students to participate in research study about UNC library services

The research study seeks to understand what library services should be provided for distance students at UNC Chapel Hill. Please read more for full request from the researcher conducting the survey.

Dear student,

I am a graduate student in the School of Information and Library Science and I am conducting a research study.  The research study seeks to understand what library services should be provided for distance students at UNC Chapel Hill.  You can help improve library services offered at UNC by participating in this research study.

Distance courses are courses taught entirely off-campus, online, or a mixture of the two.  If you have ever taken  a distance course offered by UNC, you are invited to take part in this research study by completing an electronic questionnaire survey.

You can find the survey at https://uncodum.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_0BWTl3comzJnoCE. The deadline to take it is Friday, March 23.

Submitting a complete survey implies your consent to participate in the research study.  All the data you provide will be stored anonymously; there will be no way for anyone to link the data of results of the study to your identity.  A committee that works to protects your rights and well-being reviews all research at UNC that involves human volunteers.  The Institutional Review Board approved this research study on Feb. 8, 2012.

You will not receive any monetary reward for participating in this research study, nor are there any costs associated with participation.  Please contact me by email (timcook@unc.edu) if you have any questions, complaints, or concerns about this research.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Tim Cook
