A Survey of the University of Akron School of Law Library.
Frey, Marguerite Beck
A survey of the faculty and students of the University of Akron (Ohio) School of Law was conducted to ascertain their use and perceptions of the efficiency of the School of Law Library. Results demonstrate the importance of the library in meeting the information and research needs of both groups. Several common threads of dissatisfaction are voiced by the students through these questionnaires and both groups offer suggestions to increase the library's future effectiveness. One-fifth of the student respondents feel they make poor use of the library due to a lack of understanding of its resources. Students and faculty both suggest that more ongoing bibliographic instruction would increase effective use of the library. Both groups of respondents rate the staff, particularly the reference librarians, as a great strength of the library. An overview of the library's holdings and services is included, and sample questionnaires and cover letters are appended. Twelve tables illustrate the demographics of the respondents and study results. (Contains 12 references.) (BEW)
