Survey on audiovisual collections

"Defining AV Preservation Professionals in Academic Libraries and

I am conducting a research project on defining the role of staff in
academic libraries and archives whose primary responsibilities are
the preservation and access issues specific to audiovisual
collections--specifically moving images and sound in both analog and
digital formats.

The goals of the survey are to capture 1) the position titles that
define this type of work, 2) where these positions "live and work"
within academic library and archive organizations, 3) how people
gain the skills they need to do this work and, 4) very broadly, how
people in these positions divide their time between analog and
digital media. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete the
12 multiple-choice question  survey. The survey results will be
disseminated at a later date.

The survey can be found at:
