From the GPO Future Digital System (FDsys) Library Survey Results web page:
In August 2005, GPO submitted a survey to all Federal Depository Libraries to obtain valuable input from our library partners regarding proposed features and functions of GPO’s Future Digital System (FDsys). More than 400 of the approximately 1,250 depository libraries responded to GPO’s request for feedback.
Partial results from the survey are contained in this one page pdf file: Library VOC Responses Sorted on Library Interest, High Interest (Top 2 Boxes).
A copy of the survey is available here: Library Voice of User Survey.
Those who filled out the form were asked to rate their “level of interest” on a 7 point scale (1=Very high 2=High 3=Neutral 4=Low 5=Very low 6= Don’t Know 7= Not Applicable).
Two questions in the lengthy list of “GPO services” dealt with digital deposit.
