The User Questionnaire in a Descriptive Analysis of Selected Public Libraries in New York State.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Evaluation.
The unique feature of this survey lies in its ability to define the type of user and the percent of library use based on the potential number of users in the service area. This survey classifies users by their educational level and compares the number of these users having a particular kind of education with the number in the community as a whole having the same type of education. Information solicited was deliberately planned to intertwine with other publicly gathered information dealing with New York State's total population to give the proportion of population groups using the library. The user survey information is related to other available information so that broad trends and problem areas in library service could be highlighted. (MF)
