TEXSELECT SURVEY 2004

TexShare's TexSelect program offers libraries the opportunity to license additional
databases for their patrons. TexShare negotiates with the vendors to offer the lowest
prices available for individual libraries.

More information about the TexSelect program can be found
at http://www.tsl.texas.gov/texshare/selectdbinfo.html

Once you are finished filling out the survey press the submit button found at the
bottom of the page. Your answers will be sent to the TexShare office.

This survey is for information gathering purposes. TexShare hopes to expand the
databases offered through the TexSelect program in the future. With your input the
TexSelect program can grow to include more database selections.

All answers will be kept confidential. Final results will be reported in aggregate
form only.

Submit only one survey per library, this includes libraries with a main building plus
branch locations. Is your library interested in subscribing through TexSelect to any
of the databases listed below? Please click beside the database that you may
