Call for Participation!


This is a call for participation in a survey about technical support for your Integrated Library System. This survey is part of a research project, funded by IMLS, comparing the technical support of Open Source Integrated Libary Systems with technical support of proprietary Integrated Library Systems.

This is the second survey for the project. In first survey we collected data regarding expectations of libarians for the technical support of thier ILS. If you participated in that survey Thank you very much for your participation. We really appreciate the informative, quick and large number of responses we got!!!

Now, we invite you to participate in the second survey which is assessing the effectiveness of your current ILS technical support. We will then compare this current status to the expectations to idenify any gaps or accolades!
