User Satisfaction in the Hugh Stephens College Library by Thomas R Kochtanek( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A user survey was conducted at the Hugh Stephens College Library to determine the degree of user satisfaction and identify limiting factors. Analysis of data from 203 data sheets completed by patrons requesting specific titles reveals that acquisitions by the library and user error are more significant limiting factors in this library than either circulation or library error. It is recommended that further study be made of the extent of use of the holdings of other libraries, and of the proportion of users who come to browse or search by subject rather than specific title, before changing acquisitions policy. A significant proportion of user error indicates a lack of adequate library searching techniques, and it is suggested that assistance be provided for potential users through such means as library orientation programs and signs alerting them to commonly committed errors or the location of special collections. The survey questionnaire, methodology, and data analysis are included. (Raa)

Bureaucratic organization and innovation : a mixed-methods study of U.S. state department of transportation website adoption by A. J Million( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study explores bureaucratic organization and innovation in U.S. state department of transportation (DOT) websites. To determine if working with third parties fosters change in state DOT websites, it employs a two-part, explanatory sequential mixed-methods design. In phase one, an online survey was disseminated to IT managers and communications officers in all 50 states to collect data regarding agency demographics, bureaucratic models, and Web infrastructure. In total, 45 valid responses (or 90%) were received from DOTs indicating that most built, hosted, and managed their websites in-house, but that state-level IT consolidations required many to pool resources with third parties. In research phase two, 12 semi-structured interviews were conducted of a maximum variation sample of survey respondents. These interviews were conducted to explain why DOTs built and operated their websites with the support of third parties. Employing a grounded theoretical approach, analysis revealed 6 themes explaining website adoption and showed that working with third parties can foster innovation; however, not all change is positive. Therefore, a need exists for governments to selectively work with others, ascertain future barriers to change, and ensure that adopted innovations meet desired ends. Finally, five best practices informed by study findings are presented that may help decision-makers and civil servants provide e-government services in a flexible manner
