The Zanesville Campus Library of Ohio University at Zanesville and the Muskingum Area Technical College: A Use Study of a Co-Located Campus Library.
Lorenzen, Michael
The Zanesville Campus Library serves the students and staff of Ohio University-Zanesville (OUZ), the Muskingum Area Technical College (MATC), and the local community. A library use survey was conducted to answer the following questions: (1) How many patrons are using the library and at what times? (2) What percentage of patrons were affiliated with MATC, OUZ or the general community? (3) While in the library, what were these patrons doing? OUZ patrons accounted for 52.4% of total users despite a student body half the size of MATC, which accounted for only 40.6%. Community use measured 7%. Afternoons were by far the busiest time, followed by mornings, then evenings. Most frequently, patrons were engaged in research or study. Other uses included photocopying, socializing between classes, and group study in a designated room. Four charts and one table help to illustrate survey results. (MAS)
