2015 Bridging the Librarian-Faculty Gap in the Academic Library

To study how academic libraries are serving their faculty and how they can improve, Library Journal partnered with Gale, a part of Cengage Learning, to conduct a joint study of how academic librarians feel they’re serving their faculty clientele—and how faculty members feel they’re being served by their libraries. Examined together, these responses pinpoint where academic libraries can focus efforts to take their service to faculty, as well as students, to the next level.
