State Historical Society of Iowa is presently soliciting public input about its collections and services via an online survey, as described below:
WHAT: The State Historical Society of Iowa (SHSI) wants your input about what and how you use our historical collections to conduct research.
WHO: The survey is open to the public. We encourage all Iowans interested in history and other researchers to participate - from students to scholarly to general interest.
WHEN: The survey will be open through Tuesday, June 30, 2015. You may complete it only once.
HOW: Take the survey here. It will take approximately 10 minutes or less to complete.
WHY: This survey is an important step in the SHSI Collections Planning process currently underway. It will help SHSI plan for how Iowa's history is best managed, preserved, and accessed by Iowans and researchers.
Your input is valuable as SHSI sets priorities for future care of its historical collections. We will continue to serve those already invested in Iowa history--and want to inspire new generations of historians across Iowa's 99 counties.
NEXT STEPS: To receive news about SHSI, please sign up for the Iowa Historian, the Society's newsletter.
More information about the Society's resources and activities can be found at the SHSI website.
