Running a survey

The Professional Committee pays for a subscription to Survey Gizmo, an online survey software tool, on behalf of the IFLA Professional Units. If your Section or SIG would like to make use of this, please contact the Professional Support with the following details:

  • Name and email address of the individual who will need access to Survey Gizmo;
  • Time plan for the project indicating when access would be needed (dates and time period).

The following steps need to have deadlines planned with the working group:

  • Creation, testing and revision;
  • Distribution to survey participants;
  • Evaluation of results.

Help and support

Using the Survey Gizmo help and community:  a good place to start to understand how the Survey Gizmo support pages work.

Survey Gizmo help documentation: a full overview of the online tutorials available to help you step by step along the way - survey design, best practices, and how to use SurveyGizmo.

Survey Gizmo community: ask a question or find out if someone else has discussed the problem you're having.

Accessibility Issues: ensure that people using assistive technologies have options if they are unable to complete your survey. Include a contact email within your survey and have a Word/text version available that you can send out. Survey Gizmo provides the option to do this under Tools > Download Survey > Download Word File.
