The Campus Racial Climate and Undergraduates' Perceptions of the Academic Library
Whitmire, Ethelene
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v4 n3 p363-378 Jul 2004
Using secondary data analyses, this study investigated the relationship between the campus racial climate and how 851 White and 252 students of color attending a midwestern Research I predominantly White institution perceived the academic libraries on campus. Results indicated that race-related aspects of the campus environment were correlated to the perception of the academic libraries for White undergraduates. This was not the case for the students of color. Future research on this topic is suggested in the conclusion. (Contains 2 tables and 3 figures.)
