In response to a University-mandated budget reduction, the Library will strategically reduce spending on books, journals and databases during the 2020-2021 academic year (FY21).
A number of databases have been identified for review; iPOLL is one of these. In order to gather additional data to assist with the decision making process, we ask that you complete a brief survey about your use of this online resource. Thank you for your participation.
Note: This survey will be available until the end of the spring 2021 semester.
