The NBK Community Data Groups ran a survey over the summer, as mentioned in their previous blog posts. All the groups agreed that a better picture of how libraries interact with bibliographic data was needed, in order to provide an understanding of the current library data landscape and to support initiatives moving forward.
The response rate was excellent: thanks to the 99 institutions who completed the survey. The responses have provided us with a fascinating set of data which has already proved invaluable in informing the work of the NBK team and the CDGs.
A Headline Summary of the results is now available. Individual CDGs have been analysing subsets of the data and some plan to publish their conclusions and recommendations elsewhere. Further communications about the outcomes of the survey and the work of the CDGs will be available in the new year.
