I am a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the School of Information and Library Science. I am currently writing my masterís paper on strategies for conversion of legacy paper finding aids to EAD. Legacy finding aids have been defined for this project as those that only exist on paper, document/text file, HTML code, spreadsheet, card file, or combination thereof.

I am conducting an online survey of the strategies used by institutions to address their legacy finding aids, and am currently seeking participants. The survey is anonymous, and no identifiable data will be retained to ensure privacy. If you are willing to fill out the survey on behalf of your institution please click the following link:


Thank you for your time, and I greatly appreciate those who are willing to participate. Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns regarding the survey.

Thank you,

Adam Fielding
