How are our users accessing the Library?

The following e-mail came via the RUSA (ALA) list. I thought there were some good questions for each of us to consider for our libraries.

Greetings! Are your patrons more likely to take a picture of a call number on a computer screen rather than write it down? Do you find that your users are accessing the library though mobile devices, prompting you to look for ways to assist them? Whether or not you answered yes to the above questions, we are interested in hearing your thoughts. In our effort to better anticipate our users needs, we have been investigating ways to provide library content and services in a mobile-friendly format.

Please consider answering this brief, anonymous survey (5-10 minutes). Your responses will be greatly appreciated! Please feel free to forward this survey on to interested colleagues as well.
