Take the Survey: “Blogger Perceptions on Digital Preservation”

Carolyn asks nicely:

Do you blog? If yes, then please consider participating in an online survey from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Information and Library Science. The study, Blogger Perceptions on Digital Preservation, is being conducted under the guidance of the Real Paul Jones . The study team is interested in hearing from all bloggers on their perceptions on digital preservation in relation to their own blogging activities, as well as the blogosphere in general. To hear more about this survey and to take it, go here:

From there, you can link out to the web-based survey. The survey will be available from April 25 through May 23, 2007. We believe blogs are valuable records of the human experience. Help to contribute to continued access to these important records by participating in our study. The survey should take between twenty to thirty minutes to complete.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Carolyn Hank, the study Principle [sic] Investigator, at hcarolyn AT Thanks!

    Can I take this Survey since I was alumni of SILS -UNC, research international fellow, and blogger since 2003 (actually started with blogging in Chapel Hill)? Or is this Survey for the students and researchers at this very moment of study at UNC?
    Thank you.
    Greetings, Danica

    Yes Yes Yes! You need not be from UNC, SILS or even from the USA to take the survey. You only need to be a blogger.

    Thanks, I’ve spread the ‘word’ and forwarded the link to colleagues who are researchers, scientist interested in this kind of survey. I took mine this afternoon. Cheers!
