The roles of the public library in society : the results of a national survey ; final report by George D'Elia( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

National samples of the general public (n=1,001) and community opinion leaders (n=300) were asked to evaluate the importance to their communities of 10 different roles of the public library. Respondents evaluated each role in terms of its importance to their communities. Survey results indicate that the public library's roles to support the educational aspirations of the community in general and the learning/discovery needs of preschoolers, students, and adult independent learners in perticular were evaluated most highly by the general public and community opinion leaders. Subsequent national surveys of African Americans (n=401) and Hispanic Americans (n=399) enabled comparison with a subsample of Caucasian Americans (n=846) and demonstrated the highest percentages of "very important" responses for all three groups for the three educational roles of the public library. All groups suggested levels of support for libraries that were well above the actual national median in 1990. Detailed comparisons of the role evaluations by the various demographic groups within each of the samples are presented to enable libraries or branches to generate a tentative set of roles based on its community demographics. These findings are presented in 123 tables. A separately bound appendix describes survey methodology, presents the questionnaire, and contains the frequency distributions for the responses from each survey. (Sld)

Evaluation of the Document Delivery Service Provided by University Libraries, Twin Cities Campus, University of Minnesota. Final Report of a Research Project by George D'Elia( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The University Library System at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities Campus, is a decentralized system of 35 libraries spread over 3 campuses in 2 cities. This study evaluated the performance of two libraries in the system--Walter Library and the Institute of Technology Libraries--that provide document delivery services to assist faculty members in obtaining documents from any library within the system. The evaluation process entailed both analysis of past performance data and a survey of the faculties served by the two delivery services. Past performance data were cumulated and analyzed to determine the volume and the nature of the materials requested and each library's performance in filling these requests. These analyses are presented in the first part of this report. The self-administered questionnaires, which were completed by 52% of the faculty in all of the departments served by both delivery services, was designed to fulfill two objectives: to gather from the nonusers of the services data describing their reasons for nonuse and the nature and extent of their use of the university library system; and to gather from the users data describing their reasons for use, the nature and extent of their use of the library system, and their evaluations of the document delivery service. A detailed discussion of the design of the survey and the results of the data analyses are presented in the second part of the report. Appendices a and b contain copies of correspondence and questionnaires mailed to nonusers and users of the document delivery service. (Thc)
