A Users Survey of the College of Charleston's Robert Scott Small Library: Conducted Spring 1980.
Linton, Rebecca Ann
Self-administered survey questionnaires completed by 57 percent of the college faculty and a random sample comprising 10 percent of the undergraduate population provide information on who uses the College of Charleston's library materials and services, why they use them, and in what areas users are satisfied or dissatisfied with the library. Tables identify faculty response rate, position, and length of service, as well as student response rate, enrollment status, and major field of study. Responses to the two questionnaires are analyzed and reported, including faculty perceptions of the library as a resource tool for teaching and the adequacy of the collections, student participation in library instruction, and comments on services and operations from both groups. This survey was conducted in order to identify areas in which the library's materials and services can be improved or extended to better meet user needs and play a more active role in the educational process.
