From March through May 2005, a study examining academic library usage and outcomes was conducted by the LRS in association with the Colorado Academic Library Consortium. Over 3000 undergraduate students and nearly 400 faculty from nine Colorado college and universities participated in the study. The results of the undergraduate and faculty surveys are now available via links on the LRS.org homepage at http://www.lrs.org/documents/academic/ALIS_Stu_expanded.ppt and
There is also a link for a PowerPoint that Keith Lance and I presented at the Colorado Academic Library Association (CoALA) meeting at the Colorado Association of Libraries conference in November at http://www.lrs.org/documents/academic/impact_prelim.ppt. This presentation focuses on how students and faculty respondents use library resources differently among the participating institutions.
The final report for the Colorado Academic Library Impact Study is scheduled for completion in early 2006.
