Emerging Leaders Team J releases survey: how Web 2.0 should ALA go?

For Immediate Release
Thu, 05/13/2010


CHICAGO - ALA is planning a Web redevelopment in the next year.  To ensure that the changes to the website satisfy members’ needs, ALA stakeholders should tell us: Just how Web 2.0 should ALA go? When you visit the ALA website, does it meet your expectations? Would you prefer to be able to customize, personalize, share, comment and rank? Team J of Emerging Leaders needs to know what you want out of your ALA.org experience.  Its mission is to survey members to determine how and to what extent members would like to interact on ALA.org.

The survey can be found here. Please take 15-30 minutes to fill out the questions in the 11 rating scales.  There are also six optional demographic questions.  Your responses to all questions will be confidential and anonymous. Submission of the survey implies consent for Team J to use your answers in our analysis and recommendations. The deadline for completing the survey is Sunday, May 23rd at 11:45 p.m. CDT.

Results from the survey will be presented in a poster session at the 2011 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans. They will also be used by the Website Advisory Committee and the Web Editorial Board as they make their strategic plans for the site.

Should you have any questions or problems, please contact any member of Team J, either through our staff liaison, Louise Gruenberg, ALA’s senior usability officer or by sending a message in ALA Connect or at projectjbots@gmail.com.   Thank you for your assistance with our project!
