Subject: [alscpubsch] Reminder: Goal Setting and New Year's Resolutions study

Dear Colleagues,

You are invited to participate in a survey<https://universityofalabama.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_5pUEgGchaLBbcO1> examining New Year’s Resolutions and goal-setting habits of library employees.

Leo Lo (University of Alabama) and Amelia Anderson (Florida State University) are conducting a study called New Year’s Resolutions Survey.  They wish to find out library staff’s habits and behaviors of setting goals during the new year period.

Taking part in this study involves completing a web survey that will take about 10 minutes. This survey contains questions about  respondent demographic,  goal setting habits , and  new year’s resolution perceptions.

The researchers will protect your confidentiality by not collecting your name.  Only the researchers will have access to the data.  Only summarized data will be presented at meetings or in publications.

There will be no direct benefits to you (or describe benefit or incentives).  The findings will be useful to the library profession for developing goal-setting programs for employees and users.

The chief risk is that some of the questions may make you uncomfortable.  You may skip any questions you do not want to answer.

If you have questions about this study, please contact Leo Lo at leolo at ua.edu<mailto:leolo at ua.edu>.  If you have questions about your rights as a research participant . contact Ms. Tanta Myles (the University Compliance Officer) at (205) 348-8461<tel:%28205%29%20348-8461> or toll-free at 1-877-820-3066<tel:1-877-820-3066>.  If you have complaints or concerns about this study, file them through the UA IRB outreach website at http://osp.ua.edu/site/PRCO_Welcome.html. Also, if you participate, you are encouraged to complete the short Survey for Research Participants online at this website. This helps UA improve its protection of human research participants.

By clicking on the link below you are agreeing to participate in this survey.


The survey closes on February 29th, 2016 at 6pm (Central Standard Time).

Thank you,

Leo Lo and Amelia Anderson
