The Digital Library Federation Sponsor's Born Digital Survey

Calling all digital library users! The Digital Library Federation is sponsoring a survey of special collections researchers who have accessed born digital content. For this survey, we consider born digital material to be archival material that did not start out in a paper or analog format. This might include things like email, digital files, disk images, archived websites, research data or other kinds of data, digital images, sound, and video. If you’ve used material like this, we’d love to hear from you. The survey focuses on your research needs, how you’ve accessed born digital materials, and what you wish the libraries and archives could do better. 

The anonymized results of the survey will be shared publicly on an open access platform in 2019.

Any library or archive patron using or interested in using born digital special collections is encouraged to take the survey, here>> 

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and the survey will close on June 15, 2019.
