The History of Science Society is offering several free gifts to anyone responding to a short online survey about research in the digital environment (go to this link). We are looking for responses from technophobes to digital natives from around the world.

The survey is designed to help the broader history of science, technology, and medicine community understand how digital resources have affected scholarship in the field.

The survey is for anyone who working in history of science at all levels: students, researchers, teachers, librarians, curators, and anyone else working in history of science, technology, and medicine or allied fields.

The survey is designed by Stephen Weldon (IsisCB Explore and the Isis Current Bibliography) and two members of the Technology and Communication Committee: Kathleen Sheppard and Margaret Gaida.

If you complete the survey, you can elect to be entered in to a drawing to receive either a $25 gift card (for HSS members), or a 2019 one-year e-membership to the History of Science Society with access to Isis and other benefits. Two awards of each type are available. The drawing will be held in mid January. (The survey is anonymous, and the drawing entry form is not connected to the survey collector.)
