You are invited to participate in our research about academic freedom and academic libraries. The following information outlines the nature of our research and seeks your consent to participate, which will be requested at the beginning of our survey.
The goal of our research is to learn more about academic library workers’ experiences with and opinions about academic freedom. As a participant, my participation will include responding to a short survey and will take approximately 10 minutes total. The survey will include questions about my position in the workplace, my social identity, and my experiences of academic freedom. I will also be asked if I would like to participate in an interview, to be conducted at a later date and separate from the survey. My participation in the study is strictly voluntary, and that there will be no penalty if I decide not to participate, or to discontinue participating, which I may do at any time.
