What Did We Learn From the Latest Round of the US and UK Faculty Surveys?
Join Us at ALA

Join us at ALA in Orlando on Sunday, June 26, from 10-11:00 am to learn about Ithaka S+R's US and UK Faculty Surveys.

Ithaka S+R’s Faculty Survey has tracked attitudes and behaviors of faculty members in US higher education institutions in response to technological and environmental change on a triennial basis since 2000. In 2012, we also began surveying academics in the UK. These national faculty surveys have helped the community understand changing faculty member attitudes, practices, and needs on key issues related to research, teaching, information usage, and the changing role of the library.

In this session, Roger Schonfeld will discuss what the 2015 results show us and discuss how the experience of working closely with librarians to field 80+ local surveys helped us us revise and add to our questionnaire. Medical faculty were also included for the first time in the survey, yielding new comparative information about how faculty discover and access information, conduct and disseminate research, teach, and use the library.

For those interested in Ithaka S+R’s local surveys of undergraduates, graduate/professional students, and faculty members, we’ll host an informal discussion about them to answer your questions at 11:00 am.
