Years on the NLS team: 1987-present
Role: My role is to provide user support for the NLS.
Most responses to user questions are about informing or clarifying some point. However, other questions require digging into the data and working closely with other NLS staff. This can lead to uncovering problems within the data or documentation, and once fixed, benefits all users.
NLS respondents cannot be thanked enough for their cooperation in a survey that ultimately provides an invaluable resource to researchers. Everyone on the NLS project is respectful that the information is being gathered from flesh and blood human beings and I feel very fortunate to be a member of this effort.
