We invite you to participate in a short, 5-10 minute survey. Any library employee who works in an academic library and has knowledge of authentication technology used to manage user access and licenses with library vendors and publishers is welcome to participate.

We are investigating how unaffiliated (walk-in, community) users access electronic resource collections at academic libraries. As library collections have changed from mostly physical collections to hybrid collections with rapidly growing online collections, community members and others who historically had equitable access to the collection by virtue of visiting campus have had that access restricted.

To complete the short online survey, please click on the following URL and follow the instructions provided:

The survey will close on November 5, 2018.

Should you have any questions about this survey, please contact Elizabeth Stregger (estregger@mta.ca) and/or Jaclyn McLean (jaclyn.mclean@usask.ca).

Thank you in advance for your participation, and for supporting our research.
