- Subject: [InetBib] Invitation for libraries to participate in the 2017 Library Automation Perceptions Survey
I am now collecting data for the 2017 International Library Automation
Perceptions survey conducted through Library Technology Guides.
This survey, now in its eleventh annual iteration, provides an important
opportunity for libraries to register their perceptions of the strategic
automation products they use, organizations that provide these products, and
the quality of support delivered. The survey also probes at considerations for
migrating to new systems and the level of interest in open source products.
While the numeric rating scales support the statistical results of the study,
the narrative comments provide even more interesting insight into the current
state of library automation satisfaction. Comments will be published in the
survey results, though redacted to conceal any text that might identify the
individual or organization responding.
Please help your fellow librarians who might be in the process of evaluating
library automation options by responding to the survey. Any information
regarding vendor performance and product quality can be helpful when making
strategic decisions regarding automation alternatives. A large number of
responses strengthen the impact of the survey and the subsequent report. This
survey also provides constructive criticism to the vendors involved to help
them address any prevailing issues or concerns.
If you have responded in previous years, please respond again this year to help
identify any trends regarding improvement or worsening of the products or
