Welcome to the biennial 2018-19 Faculty Library Survey Results where you will learn:
53 Faculty participated - Second highest ever!
Overall Score - 4.49 - Highest ever!
Highest Score - Library faculty and staff are courteous and helpful. - 4.84
Lowest Score - Online journals - 3.90.
Due to the strong growth in overall scores, the results were sometimes confusing. In more than one instance, a low score might be a very good score when looked at from an historical perspective.
Also, both Part Time and Graduate Faculty self reported that they were more engaged with the library than Full Time and Undergraduate Faculty, a counter-intuitive idea.
Faculty are becoming less concerned with physical collections and services and more concerned with digital.
Despite having over 40,000 online journals at their disposal, faculty see problems with having the RIGHT online journals and having to deal with long delays before content finally shows up in databases.
