Please feel free to distribute this call for participation to any who you think will be interested.
Our research into the impact of library workers with disabilities is expanding. Some of you will remember our previous survey. “Claiming Our Space” will be published by Library Trends (67:3, Winter 2019). While working through the first pass, several questions came up that we wanted to address. So the survey has been revised and expanded.
We are welcoming all library workers.
We are addressing the impact of the ADA.
We are addressing intersectionality. Drawing a strong portrait should include the extent that our respondents help us to see their multiple identities (race, sexual identity etc.).
We want to know more about navigating the library world with an invisible disability.
Will you help us continue to understand?
(Data will be aggregated. All direct quotes will be anonymous. )
