The Relationship Between Use of the Seaver Science Library of the University of Southern California and Selected Personal Characteristics of the Student Population.
McFall, Shirley Joyce
A study was undertaken to examine the relationship between use of Seaver Science Library at the University of Southern California and selected personal characteristics of students in four science classes (two undergraduate, two graduate), selected from those courses for which materials were on reserve at Seaver library. A questionnaire was administered to the four classes during class time, and the 162 usable responses were analyzed statistically on an IBM 360 computer. Results proved use of Seaver library to be highly course related and showed a strong correlation between class standing and increased use of books, journals, indexes and abstracts, reference service, and card catalog. The statistical data has been presented in numerous tables, and the appendix includes the questionnaire and a bibliography. (Author/LS)
