Survey on Certification
Please respond by December 17, 2004
This is a very short survey and should not take more than 5 minutes to complete.
This survey is an outcome of the 3 rd Congress on Professional Education: Focus on Support Staff (COPE3) which was held in May of 2003. The COPE3 Implementation Recommendations asked that the ALA Library Support Staff Interests Round Table (LSSIRT) study the issue of national certification for support staff. In response, LSSIRT created a Certification Task Force with a charge to "study the issue of national certification for support staff, prepare and administer a national poll for expectations, compile statistics from research, and keep the LSSIRT Steering Committee informed of Task Force progress."
From the results of this Certification Survey, LSSIRT would like to determine the level of interest, and the perceived benefit, of a voluntary certification program. Your participation will help the American Library Association make a decision on how to proceed.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
Dorothy Morgan, Chair of the Certification Task Force
