I invite you to help with a Library Science project

Hi, I'm a student earning my Masters of Library Science. I'm working on a project involving eBook borrowing in public libraries. I'd like to invite you to take a quick survey that will help in my research of library use/eBook use.

http://bit.ly/plmY8W

Thanks so much!

Nobody's going to be stupid enough to click on a link when they don't know where it's going to take them. Post an unobscured link and you'll get a lot more help.

What you got against links? Links is all we got!

The survey seemed a bit general to me, but then again all surveys do.

Those short URLs give no indication of where you're heading. What if it's a link to a porn site, how would you know ahead of time?

If you copy that link, paste it in the address bar and add a + at the end ( https://bitly.com/plmY8W+ ), you'll get the bitly's stats page that also show the original link. That always worked for me to find out if the website is good or not.

And the survey is pretty small and quick.

Happy to assist. Filling it out now. Some of the answers are poorly constructed though. i.e.

Quote:
How important is it to you that your library provide a high-quality eBooks service?

Not important - eBooks are just another fad
It could be 'not important' for a variety of reasons. But if that is the only Not important reason you're trying to document, fine, but if so, selection bias is going to make that result meaningless (since you posted the survey link here).

Too many extra steps. Hovering is the most I'm willing to do.
