University Library: Survey of Academics

Published on: 31 January 2014

imageThe University Library is conducting a survey of academics and researchers to gather information about emerging trends in academic and researcher attitudes and practice. The survey will run from Monday 3 February to Friday 21 February 2014.

The survey is part of a collaborative effort of the participating Go8 university libraries, and the results will allow for benchmarking between the participating institutions.

The survey is being conducted by Ithaka S+R (http://www.sr.ithaka.org/). Ithaka S+R is a research and consulting service that helps academic, cultural, and publishing communities in making the transition to the digital environment.

The survey covers four major topics:

  • the ways that scholars discover and access needed scholarly materials in their teaching and research;
  • the evolving role of the library and of library collections;
  • research and teaching practices, with a particular emphasis on how these are changing in light of opportunities created by new technology; and
  • the ways in which scholars communicate the findings of their research through a variety of media.

Academic and research staff will receive an email invitation from Ithaka S+R to participate in the survey. The University Library appreciates your time in responding. Your responses will offer important guidance for the University of Sydney and the Library in developing strategies to support your research and teaching in an environment increasingly shaped by digital technologies. Thank you for participating in this important study.

If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Michael Arndell.
