Dear Friends,

Please excuse any cross-listings.

I am conducting research for the final paper I am writing in my Archives
Seminar class this semester at the iSchool at the University of
Maryland, College Park. The paper is about the importance of Quaker
journals, letters, and blogs to the spiritual guidance and nurture of
Quakers both historically and today.

I am hoping to get input from Quakers of all ages regarding their
interest and involvement of Quaker journals and blogs during the course
of their spiritual journey with Quakerism. I have complied a set of
questions that I am hoping you will be able to fill out for me.
