For a presentation at the upcoming Off Campus Library Services Conference we are researching trends in document delivery fordistance learners. We are investigating factors that may impact use of document delivery services, i.e. level of automation, marketingefforts, number of electronic journal subscriptions and e-books, etc. We have developed a brief survey to gather information fromother institutions which provide document delivery services to their distance education communities.It only took me about 10 minutes, though I did have to stop to dig out my historical statistics...
We will be asking for statistics concerning your institution’s electronic journal subscriptions, numbers of e-book titles, documentdelivery statistics for distance education students, and student enrollment over the past five years. Gathering those statisticsahead of time or having access to them while you are filling out the survey may be helpful.
If you do not have the information to answer a question you may skip that question. Please answer as many questions as accurately asyou can.
We estimate that you will need 15-30 minutes to complete the survey.
The survey is available here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=7CV0tkSiaz6HWekmOqadEA_3d_3d
We will be collecting responses until November 21, 2007.
Your response to this survey will be very valuable to our research, and we appreciate your participation in sharing this informationwith us. Please contact us with any questions or comments about this survey.
