Dear all,

TBI are conducting an online survey on behalf of InTech - an Open
Access publisher - to gather information on the current and potential
future impact of Open Access on the role of the librarian and the
services you provide.

Help us evaluate and share how the library community is responding to
this evolving business model by completing a short online
questionnaire at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/librarian_OA_survey.
The anonymous results will be made freely available, to help inform
the ongoing development of library services.

We would also like to hear from any individuals who can spare 20
minutes for a brief telephone interview, to share the early results of
this survey and explore some of the issues in more detail. If you
would like to contribute your views, please contact:
jennie.johnson AT tbicommunications.com

All best wishes,

Jennie Johnson, TBI Communications
