Library Journal/School Library Journal is sponsoring a survey on eBooks in libraries. The ebook survey is designed to measure current and projected ebook availability in libraries, user preferences in terms of access and subjects, and library purchasing terms and influences. This survey is open to all types of libraries, and high level results will presented during LJ/SLJ‘s first ever virtual summit, ebooks: Libraries at the Tipping Point to be held on September 29, 2010. Detailed results will also be reported in LJ and SLJ later in the fall.
There are different versions of the survey for school, public, academic, and special libraries. All have pdf versions to print/view and then one can return to the site to record the answers. The academic survey had about 35 questions, some basic demographic questions followed by questions on budget, use of ebooks, expected growth of ebooks, disciplines using ebooks, etc.
