Pre-Screening Questionnaire for Intersectionality at the Reference Desk

The questionnaire linked below is part of a research study aimed at
examining personal identity and intersectionality at the reference desk. We
are looking to recruit self-identified women of color librarians to
interview about their experiences working with the public in libraries. We
hope to learn about and understand how one’s personal identity can shape
how they experience workplace interactions, and how they approach their
work in public services.

If you are interested in being interviewed, please complete this online
questionnaire (estimated <10 minutes to complete). We will follow up with
selected participants to be interviewed via email no later than December
18, 2015.  Findings will be reported in The Feminist Reference Desk, edited
by Maria Accardi; with potential for other future publications.

Pre-screening questions will be collected online through the survey tool
Qualtrics. To protect the confidentiality of survey respondents the
collection of IP addresses will be disabled in the survey results.
Qualtrics is a secure survey tool.  The answers provided will only be used
for recruitment purposes.  All data will be destroyed after completion of
the study.

Participation is voluntary and participants are free to withdraw at any
time, or may choose to only answer specific questions.

To complete this questionnaire you must be 18 years or older.

This research has been reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review
Board of the University of Illinois, Chicago (UIC), which is a committee
