Student Use of the Library at Kearney State College.
Hardesty, Larry Lynn
A study was conducted to determine the relationship between use of the library and the classroom program at Kearney State College. After an extensive review of the literature on student library use, the library circulation slips for a seven and a half week period were collected. The declared academic major, academic class, sex, and grade point averages of full-time, undergraduate students using the library during that period were tabulated. It was found that a large percentage of the students made no use of the library, and only a small minority made appreciable use of the library. Students of certain academic disciplines tended to make heavier use of the library than others, but the use of the library had almost no influence on the semester grade point average of students. It was concluded that use of the college library is not a necessary part of the educational experience of most students at Kearney State College. (Author/PF)
