Uncovering the Evidence: Faculty Perceptions of Distance Library Services
Mussell, Jessica; Gordon, Carol
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v11 n3-4 p271-286 2017
Usage statistics are a regular part of assessment but the lack of context leaves librarians pondering the reasons for fluctuations in use. Through development of an online survey, we examined faculty perceptions, knowledge, and use of distance library services to support online courses. Responses provided much needed context and helped to determine priorities and direction for services. While this survey was a useful marketing tool, results emphasized that the greatest need was for ongoing communication with faculty to increase awareness of services provided.
