Data Services Awareness and Use Survey 2008: Five-year Follow-up at the University of Tennessee

Presenter 1
Eleanor Read
University of Tennessee

In fall 2003, the University of Tennessee Libraries conducted a survey to assess awareness of its data services among faculty and graduate students in selected departments. The information collected has been helpful in understanding how data users learn about and use Data Services, how successful various promotional and outreach methods have been, and what types of data are of interest, among other things. In fall 2008, we conducted a similar survey to assess the current state of needs for and use of secondary data, and whether there has been an increase in awareness of Data Services following several years of increased promotion and outreach activities. This session will discuss the survey process, some of the key results, and how the recent survey results compare to the 2003 survey.
