Confirmation and Interpretation of Student Attitudes Toward the Library at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.
Crawford, Lou Ellen
The study described was designed to discern attitudes of undergraduate and graduate students toward existing library services and products to provide a basis for library program development aimed at increasing use and knowledge of services, products, and facilities. A survey questionnaire was administered during class sessions to obtain responses from 15 percent of the total student population. Questions dealt with degree of library use; factors that affect library use; use of other area libraries; knowledge of available resources and their use--card catalog, periodicals, indexes and abstracts, government documents, reference books, interlibrary loan, special collections, reserve, audiovisual, and leisure reading material; the role of librarians; and taking a library-use course for credit. Data are tabulated question by question, cross tabulated with class level attained, and cross tabulated by several key variables to discover cause and effect relationships between degree of library use and use of other libraries, and knowledge of library resources, factors affecting library use, degree status, and the library's image.
