My old boss at Nova Southeastern University is running a survey of library services and Librarian attitudes towards walk-in distance users. Would you take the time to fill it out? It needs to be completed by November 3.
The increasing numbers of distance students using local public and unaffiliated academic libraries is creating staffing, budgeting, and resource challenges for the impacted libraries. The following surveys will look at this issue from the public and academic library perspectives. We would like participation from as many librarians as possible. Please select either the Academic or Public library link to the survey from the following page: http://www.nova.edu/library/survey/ACRLsurveylink.htm
By completing the survey online, your answers will be collected anonymously. You may also request the
survey be sent to you by email, fax, or mail; characteristics identifying any individuals will be removed
from the results. Please complete by November 3rd. Results will be presented at the ACRL 12th National
Conference in April 2005.
Thank you for your cooperation.

P.S. A preliminary survey of academic librarians was conducted in Spring of 2003, and the results were
presented at the Off-Campus Library Services Conference in Arizona, May 2004. After you complete the
revised and expanded surveys using the link above, you may wish to see the PowerPoint presenting results of
the 2003 survey.
