  • 1.  Storage Survey Results

    Posted Apr 28, 2023 11:38 AM

    Hi all,

    Many of you were kind enough to participate in a survey of user services at storage facilities that I conducted Fall 2021. I'm happy to share that those results are now available in Journal of Academic Librarianship for anyone who may be interested. I've included the Share Link, which provides free access to this article on ScienceDirect for 50 days:

    Maddox Abbott, Jennifer A. (2023). Assessing Access: Surveying User Services at Library High Density Storage Facilities, Journal of Academic Librarianship 49(4), July 2023.

    Warm wishes,


    Jennifer Maddox Abbott
