Academic Library Impact Study Underway

The LRS is conducting an academic library impact study to identify outcomes of library services associated with undergraduate students and the teaching role of faculty. Surveys of students and faculty will be conducted this Spring, and a report will be issued in Fall 2005. At this writing, nine Colorado institutions have volunteered to participate in the study:

Five universities:
– Colorado School of Mines
– Colorado State University
– University of Colorado and Health Sciences Center
– University of Colorado at Colorado Springs
– University of Denver

One college:
– Western State College

Three community colleges:
– Front Range Community College
– Otero Junior College
– Pikes Peak Community College

If libraries of other Colorado institutions of higher education wish to participate, they should contact me ASAP.
