online survey imageDr. Chris Hagar, from the School of Information at San Jose State University, is currently carrying out a research study, called “Disaster Preparedness and Response: How Public Libraries Can Partner with Local Agencies to Meet Community Needs.”  As part of the study, Dr. Hagar is asking for public library administrators from around the county to fill out a quick, 5-minute online survey about the role their library is currently playing in community disaster preparedness.

Share this information with your library administrators so that they can fill out the survey, before January 9, 2015, at  https://sjsu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_805rSPNYVNkFEHz.

The study goal is to provide libraries and their stakeholders from around the country with insight regarding how the nation’s public libraries are currently, and can be, more involved in community-wide disaster planning, strengthening their role as core members of their communities’ disaster preparedness infrastructure.

Questions about the survey and how the results will be used?  Contact Dr. Christine Hagar at christine.hagar@sjsu.edu or 408-924-2490.
