Survey on Involvement in Fan Culture

Hi! :)

One of my best girlfriends is a high school librarian in Massachusetts. She sent me a link she received from a librarian listserv to a survey that’s currently being conducted with a request to share it with my friends who are involved in fan culture - reading or writing fic, creating or watching fan vids/gifs/screencaps, creating or listening to fan playlists, attending fan culture conventions…many, many different facets of fandom culture.

It is geared at three different groups: adults 18 and over, youths from age 13-18, and librarians (and those who fit into more than one category are encouraged to take it twice, as there are different questions depending on which category you select - for instance, my librarian friend took it as a librarian, then went back and retook it as an adult age 18+).

I have taken it and can confirm that it isn’t one of the articles that is aiming to capitalize on the “mommy porn” brouhaha. Would you please take a few minutes to complete the survey, and share it with your friends in any and all fandoms?

Thanks for providing this link. I'd love to read the summary if you find out where the data is published.
