    *Please share with your colleagues


    My name is Casey Hoeve, Associate University Librarian Content, Access, and Open Licensing at McMaster University. Together with my colleague Nicole Doro, Teaching and Learning Librarian at McMaster University, we are working on a research project studying academic librarians' usage and perspectives on preprint repositories. In order to collect data, we are circulating this survey to academic librarians in North America with the hope that you will be willing to share your perspectives.

    Your participation in this research has the potential to elucidate understanding about preprint repository usage and uptake among academic librarians. More broadly, participating in this research helps to support efficient scholarly communication and increased access to information.

    The survey is hosted on Limesurvey and should take approximately 10 minutes to fill out. Surveys are anonymous, and all questions are optional. Forwarding this email and survey to academic librarian colleagues and peers would be greatly appreciated.

    If you would like to participate, please click here to be redirected to the survey. You will be presented with a Letter of Information followed by a consent button before the survey begins.

    If you have any further questions or would like more information, you may also contact the Primary Investigator of this study, Casey Hoeve, by email at or Nicole Doro at

    Thank you sincerely for your time and consideration,

    Casey Hoeve and Nicole Doro

    "it's almost impossible to read a fine thing without wanting to do a fine thing."

    -John Steinbeck, The Pastures of Heaven


    "There is no other occupation upon earth that is so appropriate to every time and every age and every place. Reading stimulates the young and diverts the old, increases one's satisfaction when things are going well, and when they are going badly provides refuge and solace. It is a delight in the home; it can be fitted in with public life; throughout the night, on journeys, in the country, it is the companion that never lets me down."
