Ithaka’s 2006 Studies of Key Stakeholders in the Digital Transformation in Higher Education

Monday, August 18, 2008


Ithaka's 2006 survey of faculty members sought to determine their attitudes related to online resources, electronic archiving, teaching and learning and related subjects.  This study affords the opportunity to develop trend analysis of many measurements collected in the 2003 and 2000 faculty surveys. As in the past, Ithaka developed a robust set of disciplinary and other demographic analyses that have allowed them to learn more about how best to serve the needs of different types of faculty members. Findings include;

  • Attitudes towards the possibility of a transition away from print format, both for scholarly journals and monographs
  • Perceptions of libraries and their value, including specific library functions, and how these perceptions are changing
  • Preferences in research practices, including disciplinary differences and changes over time
  • Attitudes towards archiving of both print and electronic resources
  • Preferences that lead authors to choose among scholarly journals in which to publish their articles, as well as attitudes towards digital repositories
