Subject: Outsell's 2015 Information Management (IM) Benchmarking Survey - free report for all participants! *With apologies for cross-posting* Would you like to know how your library stacks up? Outsell, the research and advisory firm, has launched its 15th annual IM Benchmarking Survey at http://outsell.interceptsurveys.com/IMB. In return for your participation, you will instantly receive a free 12-page report showing how your responses compare to both your peer group, and the library community as a whole - there are helpful tables and charts telling you exactly where you stand heading into 2016. Outsell's 2014 survey, which included government, corporate, academic, healthcare, school and public libraries, found that budgets increased by 2.8%, and that over 50% of these budgets were dedicated to content. These and other useful benchmarks, updated for 2015/16, can be viewed instantly by taking Outsell's IM Benchmarking Survey. You can find the survey at: http://outsell.interceptsurveys.com/IMB; it should take no more than 20 minutes of your time to complete (you can pause it and return at will), and all information will be kept strictly confidential. The survey will close on 13th November, 2015. We hope you'll find value in your personalised report. Thank you for your kind participation, and feel free to contact us should you have any queries or feedback at all.
