Bailey/Howe Library Collections - Your Opinions Matter!

Amongst other things, the Bailey/Howe Library is considering some significant changes to its book acquisitions program that may affect whether or not newly published books are readily available to you in the library for your teaching and research needs. We would love to know how the library can best support your teaching and scholarship, and your students' research. If you would like to weigh in, I encourage you to participate in the focus groups being offered by the library.

See the message below for particulars:

Do the UVM Libraries have the collections you need? Are they available to you when and where you want them? How do you go about research and literature searching in the 21st century?

Help us learn more about how to support your research needs.

The UVM Libraries are holding focus groups the week of April 26th. In the spring of 2009, the Libraries conducted a LibQUAL survey of library users. Results show the faculty dissatisfied with library holdings, and the means of accessing them.

We want to learn more about what’s missing, and what we could be doing differently with the resources we have.

Faculty are invited to join us at focus groups on:

Tuesday, April 27th, 1PM – 2PM
Thursday, April 29th, 9AM – 10PM
Thursday, April 29th, 4PM – 5PM

Refreshments will be served, questions will be brief, and your feedback will be greatly appreciated.
