What Is the UC Davis Senate and Federation Library Survey?
The Library is conducting a UCD-wide survey of all Senate faculty and Academic Federation personnel to guide the Library’s provision of information resources and services. The tool we are using is Ithaka S+R’s Local Faculty Survey. Ithaka S+R is the consultancy arm of Ithaka, a not-for-profit that is also home of JSTOR and Portico. The Local Faculty Survey is the local version of Ithaka S+R’s well regarded national Faculty Survey Series.
When Is the Survey & How Will It Work?
The survey will launch on October 13 and close on November 15.
On October 13, you will get an email, with a link to the survey.
Reminder emails with a link to the survey will be sent to those who have not yet responded, at reasonable intervals, until the survey closes on November 15.
To encourage participation, and recognize your time and effort, all participants who complete the survey will be entered in a random drawing to win one of five $75 gift certificates to the UC Davis Stores.
