Undergraduate Survey: The Library Collection

Databases and electronic journals get highest scores for value, followed by print and electronic books. We were surprised by the low score for streaming video and wanted to let you know that we subscribe to Films on Demand, a collection of over 10,000 online videos on many subjects.

We asked graduate students and faculty about the collection; see their responses:
Faculty | Off-Campus Graduates | On-Campus Graduates
