Cornell Faculty Unaware of Library Services

March 15, 2017

In a study of library instruction and usage, Cornell University Library found that 41 percent of instructors who responded (total: 46 percent of the faculty) lacked awareness of the services it provided on how to use the library. In one school, the proportion unaware was as high as 70 percent.

The second reason faculty members cited (30 percent) for why they didn't seek out the instruction was because it is not relevant to specific classes. Meanwhile, 8 percent of respondents said they don't look to the library for help in this area, and 4 percent said that the information gained doesn’t justify giving up class time for the instruction.
