International Survey of Research University Faculty: Use of eBooks

Jan 2017| PRG162A| Primary Research Group

Report Highlights

The 118-page survey of more than 500 faculty looks closely at research university faculty attitudes towards eBooks, helping to answer questions such as: who among faulty use eBooks and who does not? How much do they use eBooks? Which faculty want their library to spend more on eBook collections and which want to spend less. For what purposes are eBooks being used? Teaching? Research? Recreational reading? Which eBook collections are most popular and how does access vary by academic field, age of survey participant, academic title and other variables?

The report also gives detailed data on how easy faculty find it to access eBook collections and how they assess their library’s efforts in information literacy in this area.

Data in the report is broken out by more than 10 criteria including but not limited to: country of origin of faculty member (with separate data for the USA, Canada, UK/Ireland and Australia), age and gender of faculty member, academic field, size of university, academic title or position, world university ranking, and many other useful variables.
