Ok we are back for one quick second just to promote a couple surveys our authors are administering for the Librarian Wardrobe book on perceptions of librarians. You might have seen some others floating around recently as well. This book will be published by ACRL Press and is expected to be available late spring of 2014. Please help our chapter authors out and take these surveys if you qualify!
Academic Librarians of Color Research Survey
Are you a librarian of color? Do you work in an academic library in the United States? If so, please add your voice by filling out a questionnaire for a study on the self-perceptions of professional and racial identity of academic librarians of color.

Academic Librarian Work Wardrobe
What do you wear to work? Why? Please take this survey about your personal style or the dress code implemented at your workplace. There are also a few questions related to the pop culture librarian stereotype. The authors are interested in conducting a study to assess if there is a connection between librarian wardrobe and student perceptions of service quality. Results expected to be published in a forthcoming book. Thank you!
Librarians and Tattoos
Take this survey if you are any type of librarian and have tattoos.
