Faculty Survey: The Library Collection

Faculty give electronic journals and databases highest scores for value, followed by print books and media. Since you rated media so highly, you might like to know about our streaming video; we invite you take a look at Films on Demand, a collection of over 10,000 online videos on many subjects.

We asked students about the collection; see their responses:
Undergraduates | Off-Campus Graduates | On-Campus Graduates
