International Survey of Medical & Other Life Sciences Faculty: Evaluation of the Library
The report presents data from a survey of 180 medical and life sciences faculty from more than 50 research universities in the USA, Canada, Australia, the UK and Ireland. The study gives highly detailed data on how faculty evaluate medical and other life sciences oriented libraries in medical and dental schools, schools of public health, and university departments of chemistry and biology, among others. Data is presented separately for evaluation of inter-library loan services, databases, eBook collections and services, journals collections, data curation and archiving services, general reference services, knowledge and service of library subject specialists and other areas of library services. The study also presents commentary on what survey participants most like and dislike about their medical or academic libraries, how often they visit, and how productive their library is compared to other departments or services that serve the life sciences at their universities and medical schools.
Data is broken out by more than 10 criteria, and is presented separately for public and private universities, by age, gender, academic title, country, academic field, university ranking, level of tuition and other variables.
