DePauw University Libraries Self-Study Report.
Hardesty, Larry L.; And Others
This report consists of a series of recommendations for the improvement of the services and facilities of the DePauw University libraries in three areas--personnel, both professional and support staff; administration and management; and buildings and equipment--with an appended set of supporting documents for the most important recommendations, and additional appendices containing more general supporting documents such as background studies on the university and the university's library system. A library mission statement and a schedule of the university offices responsible for acting on specific recommendations are also included. Documents appended include a list of DePauw University library faculty, a collection development policy statement, a building program statement, a rationale for the purchase of a terminal for online searching, and a set of materials on library policies and decision making. Also appended are: task force reports on bibliographic instruction programs at DePauw University and on the service domain of the university library system; a situational analysis of DePauw University and its affiliated libraries in relation to the national educational environment, which includes historical information on DePauw University expenditures; faculty and student library surveys; and the results of a book use study conducted by the DePauw University libraries during January of 1981.
