This is a reminder for the survey we sent out previously.

This study will address how current eBook trends and practices in libraries
will impact the larger ecosystem of collections and resource sharing. These
services have become essential to serving the research needs of faculty and
students in higher education. The findings could help identify some
limitations to these practices and predict negative consequences for
academic libraries and researchers. This research project will hopefully
help academic libraries gain insight into the future of library book
collections and resource sharing and offer suggestions to improve that

You are invited to complete an online survey that will take approximately
15 - 30 minutes to complete. Because these questions will require
information from collections and ILL staff at your institution, please
coordinate with each other to ensure that we only have one response per
institution. Also, we will be asking questions related to collections
budget and eBook expenditures so you might want to have that available when
you begin the survey. Please select NA for any questions that do not apply.
This Google folder contains a PDF with the survey questions
to help you coordinate your responses. You may then access the survey at
https://forms.gle/22GsXiLVbsh73vjo8. Please have only ONE submission of the
survey from your institution. The survey will be closed May 20, 2022

We thank you for your participation!.
