Prize Survey logo

Take part in the JISC E-book User Survey 2008 and enter the prize draw to win £200 in Amazon vouchers.

This survey is part of the JISC funded National E-books Observatory Project and is open to all University members, whether students, academic staff or support staff.

Its aim is to provide JISC with initial user feedback on a range of e-book issues and findings will be used to inform new e-book models that meet the teaching and learning needs of staff and students in the UK.

The survey closes at midnight on Friday 15 February and the draw will take place over the weekend. It should take no longer than 10-12 minutes to complete (much less if you don’t already use e-books – but JISC would still love to hear from you).

N.B. You are under no obligation whatsoever to take part in this survey. Any information you give JISC will be held securely and they will under no circumstances reveal any findings other than at a highly aggregated level. JISC are collecting the data through a third-party, Survey Monkey, and you can check their privacy policy here:
