Call for Participation: Survey on Copyright and Access of Scholarly Materials in Academic Libraries

(via Zoe Mackey–Queens College, City University of New York)

My name is Zoe, and I am a current graduate student at CUNY Queens College conducting research for my thesis project on copyright, access, and digital practices surrounding scholarly materials in academic libraries. I have created two surveys, one for academic librarians and one for undergraduate students, that will help me explore the effects of copyright and academic publishing on access to digital scholarly materials, as well as the use of Open Access databases and other digital access practices. If you are an academic librarian and have experience with digital scholarly materials and Open Access databases and practices, please consider responding to this short survey.

All responses to this survey are anonymous, and no e-mail address will be collected. All data and responses collected in this survey are to be used in the CUNY Queens College research course only. Your participation is voluntary, and no responses are required. If you have any more questions, please e-mail me at zoe.mackey66@qmail.cuny.edu.

Thank you very much for your consideration.
