Description

Clemson University began planning new data services through the library in 2012 with an environmental scan in the form of an online survey sent to all CU researchers. Due to unexpected turnover and administrative changes, the survey results were not acted upon immediately, and in 2013 many granting agencies started to implement new policies. As a result, CU Libraries decided to offer the survey again in 2016; many questions were left unchanged. This gave the data services team a unique data set that showed clear changes in the way a group of researchers approached digital scholarship in 2016 versus 2012. This data will be used at Clemson University to plan and implement new data services; the information gathered by comparing the two sets of survey results will be useful to other information professionals that are seeking clarity on changing attitudes about data sharing and data management.
