To thank you for your participation, we are offering entry into a prize draw to win one of two £50 Amazon vouchers. Details are on the final section of the survey.

For purposes of this study, we are defining research as:

The process of arriving at dependable solutions to problems/questions/hypotheses through the planned and systematic collection, analysis, and interpretation of data: it may be applied or theoretical in nature and use quantitative or qualitative methods. (This definition does not include library research that is limited to activities such as compiling bibliographies and searching catalogues.)

Please feel free to pass the details of the survey to other contacts who may be researching in library and information services, or would like to.
