IBSS User Survey


March ‑ May 2004

Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to provide data for the mid‑term review of the International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS)

The survey included an online questionnaire to gather information from a wide range of IBSS users; this was available online during April and early May. In addition, a small number of 'hands on' sessions with novice users of IBSS were run at a selection of UK Universities to provide information on search strategies and usability of the database.

The results from the online survey and hands on sessions provided statistics on the use of IBSS by a range of users, and recommendations for future improvements to inform the mid‑term review of IBSS by the ESRC in 2004.
