Do You Know Your Music Users' Needs? A Library User Survey that Helps Enhance a User-Centered Music Collection
Lai, Katie; Chan, Kylie
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v36 n1 p63-69 Jan 2010
While many surveys aim primarily at measuring general user satisfaction, this survey is dedicated to understanding music users' needs, usage patterns, and preferences towards various collections. Findings showed dissimilar use behavior and perceived importance of materials between academic- and performance-oriented music users. Needs for different score genres (formats) were also identified. (Contains 2 figures and 7 tables.)
