As part of a larger State survey of public attitudes toward libraries in Colorado conducted in 1973, this report presents data gathered from interviews with a subsample of 154 secondary school, college, junior college, and university students. The initial section of this report deals with how, when, and why students use all types of libraries. The next three sections focus on student evaluations of the libraries available through their schools and their evaluations of the local public libraries available to them. Section 5 focuses on particular public library services, including a number of proposed services which are examined for student perceptions of availability, use, or potential usefulness. The following section deals with student attitudes toward libraries in general and the purpose libraries should fulfil. The last section reports findings on types of information which students feel are useful or desirable to have available, as well as their tendency to use a library for any of their information needs on a particular topic.
