Barbara Brandt of Emory University has assembled an excellent survey to examine what you do, how you do it and where you plan to take it.
Brandt expects the survey data to serve as a valuable benchmarking tool useful in forecasting future trends and for AV planning at our institutions.
While there are no gimmicks or raffles associated with this exercise, Brandt provides a rare opportunity to for the more than 600 subscribers reading this newsletter: your input enables us to better characterize the nature of the direction of our work.
When we can quantify norms for support loads and service unit structures, then we are able to back up requests for funding increase with empirical data.
The research is solid and the survey, brief, so do it now.
