Survey for grads of US-based masters programs about attitudes toward users (needs more archivist responses!)

A request from Steve Ammidown (@stegan on Twitter):

Hi- I’m doing a quick, informal, unscientific survey of people who attended US based masters programs in library science or associated fields. I write for the blog Hack Library School, and this survey is part of my brainstorming process for a possible article on how students and alumni perceive the attitudes towards patrons within their programs. Ultimately, the librarian, archivist or information professional are responsible to their customer. Are our programs doing enough to communicate that? Should students expect to seek out outside experiences to understand patrons? Anyways, the article is in its embryonic phase, and this survey will hopefully help me flesh it out. Thanks for your time!

    Thanks to everyone who responded! In keeping with the utterly unscientific nature of the whole thing, I’m shutting it down at 99 responses, which is more than I ever could have dreamed of getting. Thanks again! I’ll be using some of my findings in an upcoming Hack Library School post, so stay tuned.
