UC Academic Staff Survey: Impact of electronic information resources in your research and teaching

In early May the UC Library, in partnership with Ithaka S+R will invite UC academic staff to participate in a research study – an online survey – about the impact of digital technologies on their research, teaching, and publishing.

The survey’s answers will inform strategic decision-making with respect to research and teaching resources by helping the library gain insight into how our academic staff currently work with information resources in an environment increasingly shaped by digital technology.

The survey’s answers will be shared for analysis, in non-identifiable aggregated form, with the UC Library, other New Zealand university libraries, and Ithaka S+R, who are administering the survey on behalf of the New Zealand university libraries. Ithaka use standard questions that will also allow us to compare responses internationally.
