This dataset is the findings from a web-based study on the need for and valuable assets of reusable software and policies for digital library infrastructures. All responses have been anonymized and include full results as well as results by survey question. The results support the IJDC paper "Building a Culture of Reuse: An Analysis of Reusable Software and Policies for Institutional Libraries." Curating for reuse is a strategy that should not be limited to digital assets, and can extend to digital library software, policy, infrastructure, and implementation. Specifically, we seek to understand how data curators utilize reusable digital library software and policies and how we at Virginia Tech University Libraries can improve the reusability of our resources in order to promote openness, transparency, and reusability.
