Please excuse cross-posting, if you receive this from more than one source.  I would appreciate sharing this as widely as possible in national and international settings.  Since this is going mostly to my librarian colleagues, please consider sharing on faculty mailing lists.  
This is a brief anonymous survey that should only take 1-3 minutes to complete.  The data I retrieve will inform my presentation at ETD2012 in September on trends in the use of citation management tools for ETD production.  Conference papers are posted publicly, so the results will be easily sharable.
The audience is faculty, staff, librarians, information technology academic staff, and students. Respondents can be students creating a thesis or dissertation, faculty that mentor and supervise student research, and librarians that offer citation management tools.  
Please disseminate widely for the next 30 days.  
Statement of competing interests:  I have no financial interest in any company producing citation management software.  As a Board Member of the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations,  I advise and advocate for effective student, institutional, corporate, and library practices in the creation, organization, and distribution of original student scholarship.
