Hello Code4libers,

First off, let me apologize for cross-posting. I am conducting a survey
of the opinions of librarians on issues relating to Privacy and Library
2.0. All questions are optional (and voluntary) and all data collected
will be separated from the individual who responded. I would appreciate
it greatly if you can take a few minutes out of your busy day to fill
out my survey. The survey will be open until next year. More
specifically it will be open until Wednesday, January 3'rd. The URL for
the survey is:

https://delphi.tcnj.edu:81/cgi-bin/formgenie/formgenie.pl?form=15371

Because this server uses a non-standard port, some firewalls may block
access to it. If this is the case, I've attached the survey below which
can be filled out and e-mailed to me. The survey should take you about
10 minutes to complete. I hope you will take the time to complete this
questionnaire. Your participation is voluntary [and there is no penalty
if you do not participate]. If you have any questions or concerns about
completing the questionnaire e-mail me at [log in to unmask]

Sincerely,

Edward

understand better the attitudes of Librarians on this issue I hope that
the results of the survey will be useful for libraries.

you personally. I promise not to share any information that identifies
you with anyone else.
