Starting Friday, March 27, 2009 the Johns Hopkins Libraries will be conducting random use studies of both the physical library and our licensed electronic resources.  At the Eisenhower Library, the study will run during random 2-hour intervals once every month for the next twelve months.  We will be conducting both an in-person survey and an online survey, asking users of electronic resources to tell us why they are using the Library at that time.  Completing the survey will take less than a minute. The results of the study will help us determine how the library is being used, what resources are being used, and for what purpose (instruction, sponsored research, or general research).  We appreciate your assistance with this valuable study. If you have questions about the survey please contact Elizabeth Mengel (; for technical questions, contact Sean Hannan (
