Academic Staff Survey: The first Australian survey of scholarly information practices in research-intensive universities

For more than a decade the Library Client Satisfaction Survey has provided national benchmarks for evaluating the quality and range of services provided for university students in Australia. To date, there has been no comparable benchmark survey of academic staff members’ attitudes, needs and usage of university libraries.

The Academic Staff Survey 2013 explores academic staff members’ research processes, teaching practices, attitudes towards publishing and research data management, and the role of the university library in academic life.

The survey is open to any member of the University of Melbourne’s academic staff — continuing, fixed-term, casual, early career, mid career, late career, from tutor to Professor Emeritus.┬áIt should require no more than 20-25 minutes to complete. Participation is both anonymous and voluntary.
