Participate in a library study - and get a free Dymocks voucher!

Have you used library systems to search for and access sources?

If so, we would like to talk to you about how you found this experience! Specifically how postgraduate students and faculty staff get access to resources and why they choose particular types of access (i.e., ILL, requesting library purchases, purchasing from Dymocks, Amazon, borrowing from the library or from a friend or a colleague, etc.). 

The University Library is contributing to a study conducted by OCLC, a global library that supports thousands of libraries by providing shared technology services, original research, and community programs. 

If you are interested in participating, you will need to complete a 10 minute online screening survey and provide your email address. We will use this information to determine if you fit the study profile. 

If you are chosen to participate, the interview will last approximately 45 minutes and will be recorded. You will need to give consent via a consent form before the interview starts. Your identity will be kept confidential and your email address and any other identifying information will not be connected to your interview responses. You may withdraw your consent at any time to terminate your participation. For your participation and completion of the interview, you will receive a Dymocks gift voucher. 

Please understand that you will not be compensated for completing the screening survey. You only will receive a Dymocks voucher if you are chosen and participate in an interview.

Participate in the screening survey.

If you know anyone who would be interested in participating in this study, we encourage you to pass on this information. We look forward to your participation and thank you for your time.
