Ontario Inst. for Studies in Education, Toronto.
A survey of faculty and students to assess user needs and satisfaction with collections and selected library services is described and the resulting data are reported. Questionnaire construction, sampling and distribution, and response rate and factors are discussed. Data analysis is broken into major categories, which include responses to general questions regarding library use and general questions about the OISE library collection. The second category is further broken into the rating of books and periodicals in the specific fields of adult education, applied psychology, curriculum, educational administration and planning, higher education, history and philosophy, measurement, evaluation and computer applications, sociology, and special education. General questions about the library focus on satisfaction with library hours, difficulty in locating material, reference and information service (including satisfaction with reference services), interlibrary loan use, orientation effectiveness, circulation services, special collections (including audiovisual and curriculum resource materials), and library facilities. Conclusions are itemized from the results of each major subdivision of the questionnaire. Appendices include copies of the questionnaires utilized. (MBR)
