Share this on social media:

The CIBER research group of University College London, UK, will conduct a global library survey to understand electronic resources challenges, trends, and best practices in tough economical times. The study will be sponsored by ebrary, which provides digital content products and technologies.

The survey will be available in the Autumn to all libraries. Results will be announced during the Charleston Conference, which will take place in the USA in November (see our events listing).

The topic of the survey was chosen by more than 170 librarians. 'We are very pleased that our survey topic was selected entirely by the library community, and we would like to thank those who participated for their input and support,' said David Nicholas, director of the Department of Information Studies, UCL Centre for Publishing and CIBER research group. “By having librarians choose the topic and provide suggestions regarding the types of questions that we should ask, we believe that he results of this survey will be of upmost value to libraries worldwide.'
