How do your STEM and health sciences faculty and students approach their research? Are you meeting their information needs?

Ithaka S+R’s local surveys program helps libraries answer questions such as these. Recently, in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Ithaka S+R has developed new modules of our local student and faculty surveys that focus on the research practices of students and faculty in the sciences. Roger Schonfeld and Alisa Rod will discuss how those modules were developed and what participating libraries can learn from fielding these questions.

They will also delve into larger research projects Ithaka S+R has undertaken to learn more about how scientists work and their perceptions of the role of the library.

Ithaka S+R’s local surveys are designed to help libraries gather evidence about their faculty and students to better understand the impact of the emerging digital landscape on research, teaching, and learning outcomes.
