Roger Schonfeld presents at an NFAIS Webinar on “Faculty Survey: Discovery, Scholarly Communication, and the Print to Electronic Transition – a report from Ithaka S+R”

Roger Schonfeld is the featured expert at NFAIS’s 90-minute webinar on the results of a recent survey undertaken by Ithaka S+R to better understand how these faculty attitudes and practices have altered over time. Since 2000, the Ithaka S+R Faculty Survey has triennially surveyed U.S. faculty members in their roles as researchers, authors, and teachers. In addition to its ability to track change among faculty members for such a long period of time, the survey also allows for analysis at the disciplinary level in many arts and sciences fields, as well as selected professions. Drawing from this dataset, and focusing especially on the most recent findings from fall 2012, this webinar will focus on three key areas of interest to libraries and content providers alike:

  • The discovery of scholarly information
  • The audiences that faculty members wish to reach and the mechanisms they value to help them to do
  • The print to electronic transition for journals and scholarly monographs

In addition, some selected comparisons will be presented from a parallel survey of UK academics, which was fielded in partnership with JISC and Research Libraries UK (RLUK) in 2012.
