survey of Amish researchers

2022-06-14

Greetings Everyone

The same announcement (see immediately below) was sent out on a separate listserv that has some overlap with registered users for JPAC. Apologies in advance for the redundancy. See immediately below a request to fill out a survey about research related to the Amish and other plain Anabaptist groups for the Hess Collection at Elizabethtown College. I just filled out the survey myself only a few minutes ago. It is straightforward and it required less than 10 minutes of my time.

Survey of Researchers Who Study the Amish and Related Groups

Do you research the Amish and/or other Plain Anabaptist groups? Help the Hess Archives at Elizabethtown College by filling out a short survey on your research needs.  

https://bit.ly/amishsurvey  

You are invited to participate in a research project being conducted by Rachel Grove Rohrbaugh, Archivist at Elizabethtown College. The purpose of this project is to better understand the information needs of researchers who study the Amish and related Plain Anabaptist groups. The results will inform the collection and cataloging of materials in Elizabethtown College’s Hess Archives and Special Collections,https://www.etown.edu/library/archives/.

If you decide to participate, you will be asked to complete an anonymous web-based survey. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes. The survey will not collect any identifiable information and no one will be able to connect your responses to you. Your anonymity is further protected by not asking you to sign and return a consent form. Your completion of the survey will serve as your consent. Participation is voluntary, and you may discontinue participation at any time.

If you have any questions about this study, you may e-mail me at grover@etown.edu. This project has been reviewed and approved by the Elizabethtown College Institutional Review Board. If you have any questions about your rights as a research participant, you may contact the Elizabethtown College IRB: https://www.etown.edu/offices/research/irb.aspx.
