Faculty, take a library survey for a chance to win an iPod or other prizes

The University Library invites CSU faculty to participate in a nationwide survey, which is designed to collect information on how faculty from a variety of disciplines and institutions use collections of digital resources and search for information about teaching and professional development. Faculty input will help the Library determine how to provide materials to support research and teaching in the most effective manner. This study is funded by the National Science Foundation.

At the end of this survey, you may choose to provide your name and email address in order to be entered into a random drawing. This information will not be associated with survey responses. Participants could win one of the following prizes: the grand prize of an iPOD Nano (one available), a jump drive (2 available), or a "Viking Cash" card worth $20.00 (5 available)-prizes provided by the Friends of the CSU Library.
