CRKN Survey on Digitization, Access and Digital Preservation

(posted on behalf of the Canadian Research Knowledge Network)


On behalf of the Heritage Content Priorities Task Group of the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN), I am pleased to invite you to participate in a survey to better understand the digitization, access, and digital preservation activities of CRKN members, stakeholders and the GLAM community. The survey covers the strategies and practices used when carrying out digitization projects, as well as opportunities, challenges, and ongoing needs.

This survey will be open until midnight, Wednesday, May 20, 2020. A summary of the survey results will be shared at the CRKN Conference in October and a final report will be available in November.

Please note: CRKN requests that each institution submit only one survey response. You may wish to preview the questions in this PDF so that you may strategize with your team prior to filling out the survey. We estimate that it will take approximately 40 minutes to complete the survey.

Please contact me directly with any questions you may have regarding this survey.

We recognize that these are uncertain and challenging times. If your institution would like to participate in the survey but you cannot meet the May 20 deadline, please let me know so that we can accommodate.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and institutional experiences with us so that we can better align our digitization, access, and preservation services with your needs.

Kind regards,

Beth (Beth Stover –
