Thank You to Everyone Who Completed the Library’s E-book Survey

Thank You EbooksThank You to the nearly 1,400 Brown students and faculty who completed the Library’s E-book survey.

The Brown University Library recently conducted a survey along with seven other colleges (Bates, California Lutheran, Haverford, Lesley, Stetson, SUNY-Fredonia, and Trinity).

The purpose of the survey was to gather much-needed and timely feedback from students and faculty on their use of e-books (for academic and personal use), why they choose print or e-book formats, and their preferences and priorities for how they access book content.

Four respondents were randomly selected to win incentive prizes: one iPad mini and four $25 Amazon gift cards. Below are a few photos of the prizewinners:

Findings of the survey will be reported soon. The results will help inform the Library’s decisions about collection acquisitions and book formats.
