Dear List Members,
We are seeking to gather examples from library and information professionals of their experience of being asked by users to check facts. The survey consists of a mix of multiple choice and open questions that should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete. There are 9 questions in total. All data will be held anonymously and only if they wish to participate in further research are respondents asked for personal information in order for the research team to contact them. If there are any questions that you can’t answer please just type N/A in the response box.
We would really appreciate your taking the time to complete this survey and you will find it on the web link below. The survey will be open until 14th August 2018.
The survey follows on from previous research into citizen response to information presented as fact during the 2017 elections in the United Kingdom and if you’d like to know more about that, here is a link to our most recent research presented at the 'Not a Fake News Conference' in June 2018:
