For the third edition of the polar bear book (almost done!), Lou Rosenfeld and I conducted five surveys of the IA community. All of the results are now available via the IA Institute web site, and cover the following topics:
- Survey 1: IA Trends
- Survey 2: Suggestions for the Third Edition
- Survey 3: Software for IA
- Survey 4: IA Education (educators' perspective)
- Survey 5: IA Education (practitioners' perspective)
Many thanks to the hundreds of you who participated, to Beth Koloski, our wonderful research assistant who did all the dirty work and assembled the results, and Noreen Whysel of the IAI, who kindly published them on the site.
