Survey of Faculty Expectations: Student Homework. Final Report.
Naylor, Alice P.
A survey was conducted to provide an analysis of faculty homework expectations on which to base a viable pattern of library service. Students were surveyed in winter quarter 1974 about their life patterns and use of services, with particular attention given to homework assignments and library use. Faculty were given the results of the survey, which generally indicated little use of libraries or library materials to fulfill class assignments. Following the student survey, the faculty was given a questionnaire which required ranking of answers to six questions. Answers received from 63 faculty members indicated heavy reliance on textbooks. Ranked lowest was the quality of the library as a source of information. Increased cooperation between the faculty and library staff was recommended to promote library use. The survey instrument is appended. (Author/WCM)
