Abstract

This paper reports on the pilot study for a survey regarding the use of the Internet by academic staff at Curtin University of Technology for the purposes of informal scholarly communication. The survey included questions regarding the respondents’ current and evolving research practices and their use of various services provided by the University Library. The paper reports on the relevant data, and suggests ways in which this might reflect on library services, in particular the development of institutional repositories as a means of supporting the emerging types of scholarly community.
