MetadataShow full item record
This research surveys the state of academic veterinary libraries, documenting changes in the international academic veterinary libraries. It gathers evidence and descriptive information concerning changes in space, collections, services, reporting relationships and staffing.
DescriptionObjective: This research, in progress at the time of this abstract, surveys the current state of academic veterinary libraries and documents recent changes across the international academic veterinary library community. Specifically, it will gather evidence from veterinary colleague libraries that are listed in the international veterinary libraries directory, maintained by the Veterinary Medical Libraries Section of the Medical Library Association, to document any closing and merging of academic veterinary libraries, to compile all evidence and descriptive information concerning changes in space, collections, reporting relationships and librarian assignments. Methods: Principal investigators developed an online survey, administered using Qualtrics, to gather data from current and recently retired veterinary librarians. Additionally, Qualtrics provides standard reporting and analysis tools. Responses will be compiled, analyzed, and shared with participants and colleagues. Results from the separate surveys and trends analyses across multiple survey iterations will be provided as longitudinal data increases.
