Can you help with MA research evaluating preventive conservation awareness amongst school libraries in England?

Student Ariana Ladjevardi is currently undertaking an MA in Preventive Conservation with Northumbria University. As part of her dissertation component, she is evaluating preventive conservation awareness amongst school libraries in England, UK, and is currently seeking school library staff to help with her research.

Ariana would like to invite all school library staff and information specialists in England only whose libraries are currently members of the SLA to take part in her survey. The questions are divided into 5 sections, and the whole process should take around 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
