During the fall of 2003, Ithaka commissioned a large survey of faculty at colleges and universities in the United States to learn about their habits and preferences related to electronic research and teaching resources. More than 7,400 faculty from numerous academic disciplines responded.
Some of the topics that will discussed in this project briefing include: faculty’s increasing use of electronic resources; their degree of satisfaction with these resources; their levels of concern with archiving of both print and electronic resources; their views on the library and how its role is changing; and their interest in newer kinds of electronic resources. Breakdowns by various criteria will also be presented, including discipline, size of academic institution, and more. Comparisons will be made with baseline findings from 2000 whenever possible.
