Survey Examines Cooperation Between Faculty, Librarians

September 2, 2015

Faculty members and librarians disagree on the importance of working together, according to a survey conducted by Library Journal and Gale, the library arm of Cengage Learning. The two organizations surveyed about 1,000 faculty members and librarians, finding that the latter group valued cooperation more strongly. Virtually every librarian surveyed, or 98 percent of those respondents, said they wish for better communication with faculty, while not even half of surveyed faculty members, or 45 percent, said the same. About one-quarter of faculty members, or 27 percent, said they don't believe cooperation is necessary at all.
