Library Population: Survey of Use Characteristics of Visitors to UW Libraries.
During a typical week of spring quarter, 1975, interviews were conducted with 3,802 people as they left facilities at the University of Washington library system. The randomly selected respondents included students, staff members, and faculty of the university, as well as nonuniversity members. In particular, the study investigated the use of library resources for research purposes, and the sources of off-campus funding for such research use. Among the respondents who reported support for research use, clear patterns of use of certain facilities and services appeared. The majority of the users, however, proved to be students primarily engaged in studying on library premises for class-related activities. (Author/EMH)
