Publication Date: 2017
The study presents findings of a faculty evaluation of academic libraries from a survey of 500+ faculty in 55 research universities in the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland and Australia. Faculty evaluate their academic libraries on a range of services and provide their input on whether their libraries should increase, decrease or maintain spending constant on a range of resources including but not limited to: journals, eBooks, print books, library technology, library staff, the library cafe and much more. In addition, faculty rate their level of satisfaction with a myriad of library resources including library seating and lighting, information literacy instruction, interlibrary loan services, online tutorials, reference assistance, ease of database searching, and the quality of the library collection and its subject experts, among other facets of the library experience. Faculty also offer their insights on what they would like to see in their academic libraries.
