How do you use stats in teaching?

The library would like to understand more about how statistical resources are used in teaching and research.  We are therefore inviting teaching and research staff, including PhD students, to take part in a short online survey about statistical resources.  The survey is open until Friday 18 December, and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.  

Your responses are important, so please do take a few minutes to send us your thoughts
