1. GALILEO Knowledge Repository: Faculty Survey

The GALILEO Knowledge Repository (GKR) project is developing a cooperative institutional repository (IR) model for USG institutions for managing and accessing their digital scholarship, research information, and related works. The GKR also will include a metadata repository for federated searching and browsing across these institutions' repositories for the citizens of Georgia and the scholarly community at large. For additional information see the informed consent document.

The survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes. During the research survey, you will be asked questions about the issues associated with open access and author rights, publishing in open access journals, and your use and perceptions of institutional repositories. Participation in the research survey will not affect your employment in any way. Note to librarians: Many USG librarians took part in a similar study in 2009. Please participate in this study as well.

YOUR PARTICIPATION IS COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY. You are free not to participate or stop participating any time before you submit your answers.
