The present study reports the results of a survey conducted at the University of West Florida concerning faculty usage and views toward online databases. Most respondents (N=46) felt quite satisfied with scholarly database availability through the university library. However, some faculty suggested that databases such as Current Contents and Social Sciences Citation Index should be recommended for inclusion in the future. Satisfaction levels with the library's interlibrary loans service are discussed as well as the reported desire for more access to online full-text articles.
