A Local Approach to Ithaka S+R’s US Faculty Survey
Ithaka S+R’s local surveys program is designed to help you delve into your faculty’s teaching and research practices. As we prepare to field the US Faculty Survey 2015 this fall, you have the opportunity to run the same national questionnaire on your campus. In this one-hour information session, we will provide an overview of the surveys program and discuss what we’ve learned from the 50+ libraries who have already implemented the survey. We hope you can join us to learn more about our survey methodology, how to participate in the local survey, and the new areas the US Faculty Survey will cover in 2015.
Wednesday, March 25, 3:00 – 4:00 pm
Surveying Graduate Students
Graduate and professional students are often the heaviest users of the library, but how much do we know about their research practices and habits? Working closely with librarians and academic leaders at several large research institutions, Ithaka S+R developed a questionnaire to examine specifically how graduate students approach their work. Learn about our methodology, how we developed the survey, and how to implement it on your campus during this information session.
