Planning for Priorities: A Survey of Academic Library Use.
At California State University, Long Beach, 1263 students and faculty members responded to a questionnaire regarding the university library. The four part instrument questioned the respondents' faculty position or student class, course level, and major; their use of the library, both type and frequency; attitudes toward staff, collection, and hours; and desired evening and weekend hours for various service areas. Space was also provided for comments. Statistical data gathered from the questionnaire were assembled into tables concerning the respondents' characteristics, attitudes, library use, desired hours and services, and student majors in relation to library use and needs. The major results of the survey were indications of a strong desire for more weekend hours, especially for the reserve book room, current periodicals, and microforms. A copy of the questionnaire and a list of respondents' comments are included in the appendix. (LS)
