As a part of the American Library Association’s (ALA) 2015 Emerging Leaders Program, we are conducting a short survey regarding publication needs and opportunities for students and new professionals, specifically targeting ALA New Member Round Table's (NMRT) newsletter, Footnotes, and peer-reviewed journal, Endnotes. We would greatly appreciate your feedback to guide our enhancement of these publications, and we estimate that the process should take less than five minutes to complete. All responses are anonymous, and the survey will be available through March 12. Please access the survey through the following link:

Although helpful, familiarity with Footnotes and/or Endnotes is not necessary. We welcome input from librarians of all types and career stages. This comprises the initial step of our initiative to improve these resources, which serve as ALA-endorsed venues for publication by those of any experience level. 

Please contact with any questions, and feel free to forward this survey as appropriate.
