UNT Libraries College of Arts and Sciences Faculty Survey, Spring 1997.
Byron, Suzanne
A survey was conducted (spring 1997 semester) with the faculty from the College of Arts and Sciences, University of North Texas (UNT) as a follow up to a focus group study conducted during the fall 1996 semester. Results from the survey echo results of the focus groups. Both studies indicate faculty from the College of Arts and Sciences are interested in: accessing electronic resources from their office or home; accessing journals; and using the Libraries to support their teaching. Examination of the concepts that the survey instrument was designed to probe reveals the following: (1) access to electronic resources; (2) collection use and satisfaction; (3) libraries' support of teaching; (4) libraries' support of research; (5) facility use and satisfaction; (6) service use and satisfaction; (7) how faculty get information about the Libraries; (8) how faculty communicate information to the Libraries. The survey reveals a positive perception of the UNT Libraries' role in supporting teaching and research among the faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences. To encourage a continuation of this and to address the preferences expressed regarding access to electronic resources and concerns expressed regarding access to journals, recommendations include strengthening the current library liaison program to keep the faculty directly informed and continuing efforts to integrate all electronic resources effectively into the campus computer network infrastructure.
