I’m writing to ask for 10 minutes of your time to complete a survey about online reference databases. I’m trying to gauge interest in a variety of features offered in online reference databases (think GVRL, Credo, SRO, ORO, ABC-CLIO, etc). My results will be used in a presentation I am co-presenting at the Charleston Conference in a couple of weeks. I’ll be co-presenting with Tom Beyer, the Director of Publishing at iFactory. iFactory created Sage Reference Online, a variety of Oxford products, and more. My part of the presentation takes Tom’s wild ideas and put them into perspective, hopefully using the data collected from this survey to determine if the features could work.
Thanks so much for your time and please feel free to forward this to your colleagues. Results will be posted on the blog at a later date.
