Found that quality of the library collection and interpersonal contact were the strongest predictors of faculty perceptions and use of library services. (PEN)

The value of the academic library as "place" in the university community has recently been debated in the popular and scholarly library literature, but the debate centers on student use of library space rather than faculty use. This study addresses the issue of faculty use of library space by investigating the use of "faculty spaces"-individual, enclosed, lockable carrels or studies-through a series of interviews with faculty space holders at the University of Oklahoma and a survey of ARL libraries. Both elements of the investigation show that faculty spaces are heavily used and highly valued by faculty members, especially those in the social sciences and humanities. The researchers present the results of the interviews and the survey, and explore the reasons for the continuing value of faculty spaces in the age of electronic information.

A survey at the University at Albany (New York) on user satisfaction with reference services gathered information on behavioral characteristics of librarians: interest, confidence, friendliness, and enthusiasm, as well as on patron comfort and overall satisfaction. Analysis of the data (n=100) indicates that user satisfaction depends on more than the accuracy with which their questions are answered. (PEN)

Canadian Journal of Information and Library Science-Revue Canadienne Des Sciences de l’ Information Et De Bibliothéconomie 27-3: 65-87.

Cyberspace offers a glimpse of librarians' unscripted ideas on how best to work with faculty in designing and implementing information literacy opportunities. Information literacy listservs, in particular, provide librarians opportunities to discuss teaching styles, technology, classroom management, and other topics, in the context of their relationships with teaching faculty. Common points of discussion include positive working interactions, complaints about faculty attitudes, or frustrations with faculty members' course assignments-and all have implications for the success of information literacy programs. By examining librarians' expressed attitudes and experiences, librarians, library students and LIS faculty may gain an understanding of those issues that facilitate (or hinder) positive working relationships, and offer potential solutions to individuals engaged in information literacy education. This paper investigates the discourse of librarians discussing their relationships with teaching faculty in postings to the Bibliographic Instruction / Information Literacy Instruction Listserv (BI-L/ILI-L) over the past seven years. The authors' unique standpoint as both trained librarians and full-time library school faculty, informs the analysis by balancing an empathetic perspective of librarians' expressed views, with an "insider" look at the lived-experience of teaching faculty. By isolating postings that reflect librarian-faculty relationships, the paper explores: a) the ways that librarians frame their relationships with faculty; and b) librarians' perceptions of faculty members' attitudes towards librarians, information literacy and pedagogy. These themes are examined in light of Social Positioning Theory, in order to explore the impact of librarians' social constructions of themselves and teaching faculty on information literacy instruction. The paper concludes with suggestions that may ameliorate the felt gap between librarians and faculty, in order to benefit those individuals both groups must reach-students.

Students may be reluctant to ask questions at a library reference desk because it is such a public venue. It may be possible to give them an alternative by providing reference services outside of the library within a faculty lab or office. Advantages include convenience and proximity to students, faculty, and their learning communities. The service may also foster closer and stronger relationships with departments. It is important to choose a location wisely, as well as advertise widely. This paper examines the provision of reference services outside of the traditional library environment, and describes two initiatives involving librarians for the Faculty of Nursing and the Faculty of Science at the University of Calgary.

This paper describes initiatives at the University of Louisville (Kentucky) as an example of a successful scenario where, through a variety of partnerships, the libraries have become more central in the campus teaching and learning community. The first section describes faculty-librarianship partnerships, including initiatives related to information literacy, distance education, faculty development, a writing center, higher education opportunities for UPS (United Parcel Service) employees, research support, and assessment. The second section addresses partnerships in the health sciences, including initiatives with the hospitals and the IAIMS (Integrated Advanced Information Management System) grant for informatics. The third section covers partnerships on campus, including partnerships with student groups, a partnership with the information technology department, and Metroversity (i.e., a consortium of academic institutions to support higher education and workforce development). The fourth section briefly notes a partnership with General Electric Appliance Park. The fifth section discusses partnership with other libraries, including initiatives related to professional education, managerial training, and information literacy training. The sixth section mentions the Kentucky Virtual Library, a statewide library partnership. (MES)

Although library literature reflects more than two decades of interest in collaborative planning between library media specialists and teachers, and although library media specialists are well-trained to perform in this capacity, there are still fewer examples of instructional partnerships than may be expected. However, commitment to the goal remains strong. This ERIC digest focuses on the research literature addressing these collaborative relationships, noting the results of a study by the Library Service Center of the Colorado State Library which offer the most recent support for library media specialists and teachers working collaboratively, as well as a significant number of prior studies that indicate a positive relationship between the library media program and academic achievement. Following a definition of collaboration, the roles of each partner and the benefits, conditions favorable to collaborative partnerships are outlined in terms of administrative and interpersonal factors.

This paper summarizes some of the traditional, as well as newer, ways that academic librarians can interact with faculty and thereby demonstrate what they have to offer in future collaborative efforts. Examples are drawn from the author's experience at Old Dominion University (Virginia). Highlights include: university service, including librarians serving on the faculty senate, committees, task forces, and interest groups; communications, including library newsletters; workshops, seminars, and forums for faculty and graduate students; events for new faculty, including participation in university-wide orientation; library instruction, including course-related library instruction and learning communities; collection development, including librarian attendance at faculty meetings of departments; new services, including digital services; work with other service units on campus, including creating World Wide Web-based courses, teaching on television, other nontraditional teaching and learning methods, beginning computer skills workshops for students, and term paper assistance; and social gatherings.
