Results of a Survey of Pullen Library Users. Institutional Research Report No. 81-17.
Prather, James E.; Clemons, Michael L.
This 1980 survey of 3,356 users of the Georgia State University library gathered data on user affiliation, library usage, frequency of usage, perceptions of library adequacy, usage by field of study, and user residential patterns. It was found that over half of the users are undergraduates, 29 percent are graduate students, and 14 percent are not affiliated with the university. University users are more likely to use the library for nonbook-related purposes, with undergraduates using the library heavily for studying. Faculty, staff, and alumni use the library for personal research. The report presents further findings, lists ten references, describes the methodology, reproduces the survey instrument, and summarizes selected verbatim comments. (FM)
