    You are being asked to participate in a research project being conducted by Patrice-Andre Prud’homme and JJ Compton. We are conducting the first phase of a quantitative analysis investigating how both digital and physical materials are obtained from donor to processing by members of state, regional and national archival and museum associations, as well as organizations dedicated to the preservation of digital media. You are being invited to participate in this study because you are currently employed in an archive(s) and are part of an association.

    If you choose to participate, you will be asked to complete a survey that consists of 10 questions. This survey is expected to take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete. Participation in this study is completely voluntary.  You can choose to complete the survey or not, and may choose to stop the survey and leave at any time.  If you would like to participate in the study, please use this link to access the survey: http://okstatelib.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8zY8GRvpxjLxhFX     

    The survey will remain open and available until Wednesday, December 19, 2018.  The responses to the survey will be collected behind a password protected account for the safety and security of the participants. 

    If the sample size of the initial respondents is too small to be representative, we reserve the right to re-release the survey for an additional data collection period.

    If you have any questions about the study, please email us directly at jj.compton@oc.edu or pprudho@okstate.edu

    Thank you in advance for your interest.
