MSU Libraries: A User Survey.
Hendrix, Wilma; Rudolph, Janell
During the 1981 Spring Semester, the Memphis State University (MSU) Libraries asked representative groups of library users to give their views about the services, personnel, and facilities of the library system in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the libraries in the MSU community. This study indicates that the MSU Libraries are effectively meeting the needs of their users. The responses most often received to the items in the questionnaire were used to draw profiles of the populations being surveyed--faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, and special privilege users. According to these data, these respondents use the MSU Libraries to find and read books and periodicals for academic interests and requirements, and believe that the MSU Libraries play an important role in the university community. They regard the libraries' facilities and collections as adequate for their needs and the personnel as willing and able to help them. The data upon which these summaries are based are included in this report along with a copy of the survey instrument. (Author)
