The University Supply Store has been selected to participate in a national survey to understand how faculty at our campus and others view the future of textbooks and related curricular resources. The University of Alabama is one of approximately three dozen two- and four-year colleges and universities participating in this project, which is sponsored by the Independent College Bookstore Association (ICBA).
The survey focuses on the factors that affect your choices about textbooks and curricular resources and seeks your thoughts on the movement to digital curricular resources (digital textbooks, supplements, etc.). The survey will help inform our efforts to provide better resources for you and for all our students.
The short survey (13 quick questions) should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
The survey is available online: please click here to access the online questionnaire.
Also, all your responses are confidential and neither the University Supply Store or the University will see any of your responses to the survey.
A summary of data from UA will be shared once ICBA provides the feedback in several months.
On behalf of the University and University Supply Store, we would be most appreciative if you would participate in the survey.
Thank you for your assistance and input!
