Technology Survey


SCONUL’s Technology Survey has now been launched. This was developed in response to requests for a clearer picture on the use of technologies across the library community in the UK and Ireland. It covers around 30 functional areas of activity (e.g. discovery; library management systems; gate entry products). We are hoping that as many members as possible will find the time to provide this data as part of a collective effort to support the sector. The results will be published in the autumn and will be accompanied by analysis and case studies. The deadline for responses is 31 July.

A briefing note covering the purpose of the survey; how the data will be used and guidance on filling it in can be found here. A copy of the questions can be found both in Word and Excel for ease of reference.
