Adam (adamworrall4) | 5 comments Hi, my name is Adam Worrall, and I am a doctoral candidate at the Florida State University School of Library and Information Studies. I’d like to invite all members of and visitors to Historical Fictionistas to complete an online survey for a research study of Goodreads and its role in groups and communities. You can take the survey by clicking on the following link:

https://fsu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_9SqFRFNSwR8S9bD

The purpose of this study is to look at the roles digital libraries, such as Goodreads, play in the groups and communities their users are part of. I am interested in your use of Goodreads as an individual and in your interactions with others in groups and communities. Your survey responses will help me to see the roles the site serves for you, other users, and broader communities of users, and should improve our understanding of how these sites and other digital libraries can relate to groups and communities. The study is being conducted independently of Goodreads.

The survey should take you no more than 15-20 minutes to complete. Completing the survey has minimal risks to you as a participant, believed to be no more than the risks you experience in everyday life. By participating you may benefit indirectly, as a user of a digital library, from improved digital library design, usability, services, and an overall better understanding of the social elements of digital libraries. For completing this survey, you will be entered into a drawing for 10 $25 gift cards. You may choose between gift cards from three bookstores: Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, and Books-A-Million.

You can take the survey by clicking on the link below. Please feel free to contact me via e-mail at apw06@my.fsu.edu should you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your participation!

Robin (ukamerican) | 534 comments I'm sorry, I tried to complete this but I found the questions/statements SO repetitive, I felt like I was answering the same question over and over and over again and I finally got tired of it and gave up.
