ALSC Survey: A message from Meredith Steiner, ACL President, to all youth services librarians:
“I am excited to be a part of a group of public and school librarians from different libraries around the country working with ALSC, to conduct an environmental scan of current trends in children’s library services. This is the project I am working on as part of this year’s ALA Emerging Leaders program (please ask me about EL if you are interested in applying).
We have created a *brief* survey for youth services librarians (school and public) and other interested parties. Our goal is for this survey to give us a more detailed sense of what trends are the most relevant and important to librarians serving children and youth and how ALSC can best support librarians’ professional development needs. If you have any questions or would like to talk more about the survey and/or the project, please feel free to get in touch with me directly.
The link to the survey is here; we would greatly appreciate your taking a moment to share your thoughts with us. 🙂
Thank you in advance for your consideration.”
