Dear Colleagues,
You are invited to be a participant in a research study about priorities, strategies, and challenges related to library collections in order to explore and identify trends and patterns in libraries that are not members of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). This survey explores priorities, practices, and perspectives on the future of collections work at non-ARL institutions.

If you choose to participate, you will be asked to complete a survey that consists of the following sections: Local Collections; Investing in Open; Funding & Collections Projects; Collections Data & Marketing; Consortial Relationships & Interlibrary Loan; Big Picture Questions, and Demographics. This survey is expected to take about 20 minutes to complete.  You can download a copy of the survey questions here.

Participation in this study is completely voluntary, and you can choose to exit the survey at any time. The Institutional Review Board at Illinois Wesleyan University has approved this study.

If you have any questions about this study, please contact me at
