Are User Surveys Fit for Purpose? A Case Study on the Use of a Contingent Valuation Survey at Middle Temple Library

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  11 May 2020

Abstract

In this article, based on a presentation at the BIALL Annual Conference in 2019, Renae Satterley and Adam Woellhaf discuss the methodology and potential effectiveness of using contingent valuation surveys in law libraries. Their approach is based on the Middle Temple Library's experience of running such a survey in 2018.
