University Science and Engineering Libraries--A Survey.
A project sponsored by the Council on Library Resources in which the science and engineering libraries at 22 selected universities were studied is summarized in this report. The study was concerned with only certain aspects of such libraries, namely collection development, reader services, physical facilities, and professional staff attitudes and background. Twenty of the universities are in the United States, and two in Canada. The proposal was to examine the campuses at first hand and then interview not only librarians but also a selected number of faculty members and students. The purpose was to try to get a balanced view of the actual status of these libraries. Medical libraries were excluded in order to avoid having too broad a scope for the project. This report describes the plan for carrying out the project, the detailed results, and some general conclusions. Descriptions of the library systems in the study and copies of the survey questionnaires are appended. (Author/SJ)
