Participate in a Survey of Link Resolvers and Related Products

2008 Library Automation Survey

Please participate in a survey on OpenURL based link resolvers and knowledge bases conducted through Library Technology Guides. Link resolvers have been implemented in libraries that have offer collections of electronic resources to their users to facilitate linking to full-text content and other services. While used primarily in academic libraries, link resolvers have been implemented in many types of libraries with significant investments in subscriptions to electronic resources.

The survey aims to collect data from libraries that use any of the major linking or knowledgebase products, including ratings of overall satisfaction, the completeness, quality, and currency of the underlying knowledgebase as well as narrative comments about how the products perform in each of these areas.

The study also aims to measure the numbers libraries that have not implemented a link resolver. If your library has not implemented one, please respond and simply indicate "None." It would be helpful to provide as a comment any reasons for not implementing, such as cost, lack of need, or use of alternative products.

Only one response per library is allowed. The survey should be completed by or in consultation with the persons in your library that deal most closely with electronic resources and your linking product.

How to participate

The survey links each response to the listing for a library in the lib-web-cats directory. This connection provides the ability to correlate responses with the extensive library demographic data in lib-web-cats.

  1. Find your library in lib-web-cats:
    Find your library:
    (hint: for public libraries, enter city or county)
  2. Select and view the listing for your library
  3. Press the button
  4. Complete the form and write in your comments!

When viewing the entry for your library in lib-web-cats, please check for any incomplete or inaccurate information and let me know of any needed changes.

If your library isn't listed in lib-web-cats, please submit its information.
