  • 1.  FW: Ebooks survey

    Forwarded on behalf of Jen Farthing. Please reply directly to her at jennifer.farthing@Vanderbilt.Edu with any questions about this survey.

     I am a doctoral candidate at Vanderbilt University who is conducting research on eBook purchase processes. 

     Specifically, I am focused on large research universities and subject librarians. However, all kinds of librarians participate in eBook processes, so I wanted to hear from a variety of librarians first to learn about a few basics – the topic of this very short survey. 

     As a second step, I'm building a phenomenological study of subject librarians so that vendors can better know their day-today activities and ways they may be of service. Survey respondents may opt in to participate.
