I think the above heading is not appropriate. "to determine the best way to conduct the survey" should not be here at all. The proposer (that's us) should have a clear idea on how to conduct the survey.
What about "> Interview with managers of academic libraries providing similar distance learning services."
Typical questions include the types of services provided, the difficulties, and common problems as well as benefits.
