The Role of ARL Libraries in Extension/Outreach. SPEC Kit 233.
Lee, Tamera, Comp.; Jenda, Claudine, Comp.
SPEC Kit, n233 Aug 1998
This survey was conducted to determine how ARL (Association of Research Libraries) libraries are participating in extension/outreach through three objectives: identify the level of involvement; determine the types of outreach service, as well as user populations; and ascertain the impact on the library, including its financial donor programs. A secondary goal was to identify any major issues and trends related to extension/outreach. In the fall of 1997, the survey was distributed to 121 ARL libraries, of which 61 (50%) responded. A copy of the questionnaire with a tabulation of responses is provided. The kit also contains representative documents, including: (1) policy and mission statements from the University of Hawaii, University of Kentucky; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, National Library of Medicine, Smithsonian Institution, and University of Tennessee; (2) promotional pamphlets from the University of Toronto; (3) cooperative library networks materials from the University of Michigan, Ohio State University, and Texas Tech University; (4) fee-based library services materials from the University of Michigan and University of New Mexico; (5) distance education materials from the University of Kentucky, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Texas Tech University; and (6) an evaluation and assessment report from Auburn University. SPEC Flyer 233 summarizes survey results. Contains the survey with results and a list of responding institutions. (Contains 20 references.) (DLS)
