This message is an invitation to participate in a NISO
<http://www.niso.org/home/> supported survey about the licensing practices
of libraries and content providers. To take this survey, you must have some
licensing responsibility at either a library (or other content purchasing
institution) or publisher (or other content provider). If this does not
describe your role, please feel free to forward this survey to the person
in your organization who has licensing responsibility. This survey should
take about 10 minutes to complete and will close December 1, 2017 (end of

To take this survey please click on the link below:

The survey questions will ask about your organization's general licensing
practices and use of NISO's SERU (Shared Electronic Resource Understanding)
<http://www.niso.org/workrooms/seru>.  Whether or not your organization
uses NISO SERU, your response will be important to understand the adoption
of NISO SERU, reveal factors that increase or decrease the adoption of NISO
SERU and could inform future revisions of NISO SERU.

Some things to consider before taking this survey:

   - Several of the questions ask for approximate numbers. *Please* use
   your best estimate to approximate your answers.
   - The terms "license" and "contract," for the purposes of this survey,
   are used interchangeably.

You may be assured of complete confidentiality. Any contact information you
provide will be used for validation purposes only and to identify multiple
responses from the same organization. The data will be reported only in the
aggregate and no individual or institution will be identified. Taking part
in this survey is completely voluntary.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,
