2019 Survey of Hospital/System Librarians Regarding
Hospital/Clinical Access and RA21

This survey is intended to study the opinions and knowledge of librarians about authentication and access of licensed library resources in hospitals, health systems and institutions providing patient care. All data will be reported in aggregate and individuals and institutions will NOT be identified. This information will inform a report of the STM RA21 Hospital/Clinical Access Working Group and the STM/NISO RA21 Outreach Committee. For questions please email: michelle.brewer@wolterskluwer.com

We will raffle off five $100 American Express gift certificates as a way of thanking you for your assistance.  We will hold the random drawing at the conclusion of this survey, March 22, 2019. Survey questions can be directed to michelle.brewer@wolterskluwer.com

Sincerely,
