Survey of Information needs of Mycologists

About the Survey
I am working as a Librarian in the Bioinformatics Center, University of Pune, Pune.  I am pursuing my PhD. in Library and Information Science. Prof. Harsha Parekh (guide) SNDT University, Mumbai and Prof. Geoffrey Bowker (co-guide) UCSD, USA are guiding me.  The area of research is Biodiversity informatics under which I am working on the construction of the database structure for the Indian fungal species.The structure of the database is based on the Information needs of various types of users such as Mycologists, agriculturists, medical mycologists, industrialists, etc. During the study I am going to harmonize the contents of the various primary (books, journal articles) and secondary (abstracting services) sources of information as well as existing worldwide databases available on the Internet.  Apart from this I have designed a questionnaire to be circulated to the various researchers from these areas.
