Add Resource type `Questionnaires` to CDI
One of the central CDI collections in Israel is the Szold Research Tools collection.
This collection specializes in questionnaires used in dissertations and theses. However, the resource type is shown as
Other, as there is no
Questionnaires resource type currently in CDI.
This resource type is important to the academic community in several fields of study, and is searched widely by our patrons in Primo.
Libraries are also continuously cataloging questionnaires, created and translated by researchers within the institutions.
Since there is no common ground between CDI and local questionnaires, using advanced search or filtering the facet for questionnaires prevents users from getting all relevant records.
Adding this resource type to CDI will help make display and search\filtering better and more coherent for users.

I totally agree!

Now there are CDI Brookdale Institute records that are also questionnaires, but with resource type "Report" - while the Szold questionnaires are still "Other" - This is becoming even more problematic to filter and search
