DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Survey of American College Students, Evaluation of the Academic Library, 2018 Edition" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
This study presents highly detailed library satisfaction demographic data from a representative sample of approximately 1,100 college students attending 4-year colleges in the United States.
- Asked about whether their library is available when needed, 58.5% find it is virtually always open when needed, 25.5% say library hours are fine but extended hours might be nice, 13% are satisfied but would welcome extended hours, 2.5% indicate library is not open when they need it and 0.5% did not answer.
- While students were generally quite satisfied with the range of databases provided they were less satisfied with the training that they received on how to use them. Close to 6% were either very dissatisfied or dissatisfied and 24.75% considered themselves only somewhat satisfied.
- Cohorts with students expressing the highest satisfaction with library printing facilities are those at schools with the highest enrollment (82.5%), freshman (84%), those who are very religious (81.5%), and those with the lowest ACT/SAT scores (83.5%).
