The University Library is delighted to announce Professor James Gilkerson (Veterinary Science) as the winner of a $1000 shopping voucher.
James was one of 260 academic staff who completed the Academic Staff Survey earlier this year.
The survey — the first of its kind in Australia — gives us valuable feedback on how University academics find, use, collect and store research data, teaching materials, articles and other scholarly information.
The questionnaire was based on surveys run nationally in the UK and USA in 2012.
This year the survey was run at most Group of Eight universities in Australia and the combined results will compared with the international benchmarks.
At Melbourne the survey results will improve our understanding of how the University Library can better support research processes, teaching practices, scholarly publishing and research data management.
