Kennedy Library is the first CSU to participate in the Ithaka S+R Local Faculty Survey. First launched in 2012, the Ithaka survey is a national standard for understanding faculty perceptions of the role and value of libraries in supporting research, teaching, scholarly communications and societies. All full-time Cal Poly faculty will be invited to participate.
The survey results will inform our strategies for strengthening faculty services and partnerships with faculty. It will also benchmark Cal Poly faculty’s perceptions and habits with national data. Faculty can expect an invitation to participate via email later this quarter.
Kennedy Library also collaborated with Ithaka to extend their national survey questions to address emerging issues of open education, open data, and open access and scholarly communication.
