About This Survey
» An independent Reprint Desk study conducted in Napa, CA, on March 24,
2009, at the Special Libraries Association (SLA) Division of Pharmaceutical & Health Technology (P&HT) Spring Meeting

» Information was captured using electronic handheld devices to capture
and aggregate anonymous real time audience responses to questions real-time

» Questions were integrated within the presentation entitled ‘The Role of the Information Center in Critical Regulatory Submissions’ presented by Ian
Palmer, Head of Marketing at Reprints Desk

» The audience totals represented a smaller sub-segment of the meeting
audience that was present for most of the SLA P&HT Event, likely due to the session slot as the last session on the last day of the event
