About the survey

Thank you for agreeing to undertake this important survey.

Ecollections are growing in public libraries. Some have turnover rates very similar to print publications, while others are substantially lower, sometimes even less than the collection size. Ereaders and tablets are available for loan in some public libraries. Some are well used, and others are never used.

A deeper analysis of the data and an understanding of collection promotion and development would enable public libraries to identify good practices for ecollections and ereaders and enable NSW public libraries to maximise the benefits and reach of a significant investment.

Note: tablet will be used as a generic term for iPads and other tablets

The survey will close at COB on 9 February 2015.

Thanks again for your participation.
