Library survey invites responses

Share this on social media:

The LISU research group at Loughborough University, UK is conducting a survey into academic libraries as part of a ‘library value’ research project commissioned by SAGE.

The survey, which will remain open until 16 May, is the final stage of the project and is open to all higher education librarians. It asks:

• How can you improve the communication and working relationships between your library and academic departments?

• How well are you marketing your teaching and research support services to academic staff?

• Are you interested in proving your value to academic staff in their teaching and research activities?

LISU has conducted eight case studies in the UK, USA and Scandinavia to uncover examples of good practice. The intention is to use these examples to raise the profile and value of the library within the institution, and to academic staff in particular.
