Thanks, Rich.  I'd like to view all your items but I don't want to corrupt your results.  Will it be a problem if I enter dummy data so that I can view all the questions?  I will only do this once.

Here's our survey for this September:  http://survey.law.uvic.ca/limesurvey/index.php?sid=87511&lang=en

We may tweak it a bit, but this is what we are going with so far. We try to keep is short (5 minutes or less), and typically have a 95% response rate for first year students as we have them fill it out in our Library computer lab during their library orientation.

In my particular Province in Canada we cannot store student information on server outside of Canada (because of Patriot Act concerns), so we're hosting the survey locally using a great open source survey package called LimeSurvey.

UVic Student Technology Survey 2012


The Library and your Faculty are gathering information about student technology usage in order to help us improve our services to students.


We rely on your feedback in order for us to make informed decisions as we look at new technologies to potentially implement.  Please take 3 to 5 minutes to complete the following voluntary, anonymous survey and share your comments with us. Through your faculty, we will email a summary of the results to all students once the survey is complete, and publish the summary on the library website. Please review the “letter of information for implied consent<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ay-O-md8ht0GRGPa5fyc1LBvefGD5_eqebCXi7FA-Wc/edit>” for detailed information about the survey.

Hello Everyone,

Do any of you conduct surveys of law student technology ownership and use?  We've conducted a survey of our 1Ls over the past few years but I feel my questions are a little dated.  If any of you have surveys or ideas about promoting responses, I would really appreciate hearing them.  I'd also be glad to collaborate on a survey project if any of you are interested.

Best regards,

Will
