UMD & NAL Food Studies Survey

Submitted by the Agroecosystems Management Program

We would like to invite you to participate in our research by completing a brief survey. Food Studies is an interdisciplinary field and your unique insights would be invaluable to our study. We are investigating the user needs and behaviors of Food Studies scholars as they relate to digital collections. We hope that this research can help to improve the digital services at the National Agricultural Library and other institutions by shedding light on: the types of digital collections that Food Studies scholars commonly consult, their search and review methods, and their unaddressed needs with regards to digital resources. The survey should take no longer than 30 minutes and will ask questions related to your use of digital collections and other resources related to Food Studies. For example, you will be asked about your research process, the importance of specific digital repository features, and whether you have used specific information resources. 

This research is supported by a cooperative agreement between University of Maryland iSchool and the National Agricultural Library of the United States Department of Agriculture. The project is led by Katrina Fenlon, assistant professor at the UMD College of Information Studies. Katrina, however, is on leave.
