Survey closes after *November 30th*! This is your last chance to voice your
opinions about working in library IT.

Dear Library Technology Professional,

Would you like to participate in research that may help make library
workplaces more pleasant and rewarding?  We are writing to invite you to
participate in a research study that aims to identify factors associated
with recruiting and retaining IT staff in libraries in the United States
and Canada.  We want to know which factors-and types of factors-are most
likely to attract you to a library IT job and encourage you to stay at a
library IT job.  There are no direct benefits to you, but we hope this
information will help library and other leaders to create workplaces that
are more attractive to library IT personnel.

You must be over age 18 and currently employed in a library IT-related
position in the United States or Canada in order to participate in this
study.   If you consent to participate, you will be asked to complete an
online survey, which should take about 15-20 minutes to complete.
This research is being conducted under the direction of Janet Crum,
Northern Arizona University, Cline Library.

To thank you for your time, you will be given the opportunity to enter a
