PROV has been asked to assist in publicising the following research project. We feel this research would be valuable and would encourage all records manager to participate
Did you know over 470 Twitter accounts have been created by government departments across Australia?*
Social media is here to stay and records managers need to get to grips with this new technology. To help shed some light on this area, I am conducting research into how government agencies in Australia are capturing public records created on third party social media websites.
I would like to invite records managers from all levels of Australian government, whose agency is either using or thinking about using social media, to participate in my survey. It doesn’t matter if you are unsure of if or how social media is being used in your department, your answers are still needed.
This survey has been approved by the Human Ethics Committee at the Victoria University of Wellington.
Responses to the survey are anonymous. No personal information is required and responses will be aggregated so organisations cannot be identified.
The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete. On completion of the survey participants will be given the opportunity to enter the draw for a $100 Coles voucher. The survey will be open from now until Friday the 22nd of June but may be extended subject to response rate.
By submitting the survey you are agreeing to participate in the study
