End user online survey
(these are results the from two 'tranches' of a small survey undertaken in October and November 2011)

We worked with Dawsons to set up a (optional) survey of end users. We kept this simple and addressed the key issues around:
Motivation- what tasks-- 'jobs' were being done for which the ebook was sought
(in the second tranche we asked additional questions to better define 'research')
Discovery--where do users find out about the ebook
Metadata--what elements are useful to users
Needs- did the ebook meet the needs

The results tranches of the survey are given below

Motivation (what tasks are ebooks being used for? )

Clarification on types of 'research'

Discovery (how was the ebook discovered?)

Metadata (which elements were most useful?)

Were needs met?
