Library Service for Kansas State College: Planning for the Next Decade by Means of a College-Wide Series of Questionnaires.
Tanis, Norman E.
A four-part questionnaire was constructed and administered to the users of the Kansas State College Library to aid the library staff in planning for effective library service and in developing a book acquisition policy for the next ten years. The four surveys conducted were: (1) departmental, in which academic departments were asked to indicate the depth of the library collections required for the specific subject areas in their disciplines, (2) faculty, in which the instructional staff answered questions on faculty use, instructional and student use of libraries, instructional and resource planning, resources, services, and library personnel, (3) graduate students, which consisted of questions on libraries used, research projects and theses topics, library services and regulations, library instruction, and suggestions for improvement in specific areas, and (4) undergraduate students, which included questions on libraries used, difficulties experienced with the library, library personnel, and possible facility improvements. This report consists of the survey questionnaires and results, with the questionnaires used for the faculty, graduate student, and undergraduate student surveys based to a considerable degree upon forms used by Columbia University.
