Kudos to the 2021-2022 Directory Task Force!By Brandon Locke
The Kudos program recognizes impactful work done by community members on behalf of the Library Publishing Coalition community.
This Kudos recognizes members of the 2021-2022 Directory Task Force for their work to evaluate and revise the Directory Survey:
Many thanks to the members of the Directory Task Force (including Perry Collins, Karen Stoll Farrell, Nicholas Wojcik, Rachel Lee, Liz Scarpelli, and Emily Stenberg) for their work to evaluate and revise the directory survey. As a group they tackled several major components: streamlining and reducing workload for participants throughout (e.g., removing/adapting several questions that required counting or tracking down data); rethinking an approach that often artificially separated the work of university presses from that of library publishers; and incorporating a new, short section focused on identifying policies.
The revised survey is a thing of beauty!
