The past several years has seen a flurry of scholarly communication regarding text and data mining (TDM) efforts, from case studies of library and vendor partnerships to statements of principle regarding model terms in library licenses. While much has been prognosticated about this seeming boom in activity, little data has been collected about the actual impact at the campus level over this period. This presentation will discuss results of a planned survey of academic libraries, building upon a survey conducted by Miller in 2015 and reported in her Master's thesis. The survey will explore the frequency of TDM requests from researchers, the ability of libraries to successfully accommodate these requests, and the impact these requests have upon service capacity. It will also explore how vendors are evolving their licensing models as the demand grows, and to what extent libraries are able to successfully negotiate model terms regarding TDM into vendor licenses. We hope the resulting data will provide a clearer picture of the current state of affairs, and help spur evidence-based solutions to allow this growing segment of library services to flourish.
