Collecting Research Data in the Libraries – OHIO University Libraries

University-affiliated individuals or groups engaged in research projects who wish to administer surveys, questionnaires, or use other methods to collect research data in the Libraries may apply via email to either of the Assistant Deans, Janet Hulm or Kelly Broughton for permission. Such activities must be limited in duration and have a well-defined purpose.  The application must identify the nature and purpose of the research, provide details of the data collection method(s) to be used, and the proposed dates and locations of data collection. Student projects must have the approval of a member of the University faculty and the faculty name and contact information should be included in the application.  The Libraries may require confirmation of IRB approval.
