Faculty members overwhelmingly prefer using online material to printed material, according to the results of a survey released this week by Ebrary, a company that provides electronic content and technology to libraries, publishers, and other businesses. The survey shows that half of faculty members prefer electronic resources, and 18 percent prefer print. Another 32 percent said they had no preference. The results were based on responses of 906 faculty members from 300 colleges and 38 countries.

From an article by Andrea L. Foster in The Wired Campus (an online feed from The Chronicle of Higher Education), 8 November 2007. If you are in an academic library, you really should be getting The Wired Campus via RSS feed or email every day. There’s great stuff in it.

Working as I do in a research library, this article echoes the preferences of our staff researchers. Very interesting, thanks for posting this!
