Monique, and all,

We did a collection development assessment (of sorts) for SACS accreditatio=
of the Instructional Materials Collection. It may prove helpful. We
distributed surveys to faculty and students. We asked for area of study,
research, and instructional specialization. Then asked for the following:

Indicate what types of items you have used in the Library=B9s Instructional
Materials Collection.

Then did the following with a 1 to 5 scale from Strongly Agree to Strongly

I can find Instructional Materials using USF Libraries Online Catalog.
I can find the Instructional Materials that I need on the Library Shelves.
I find the Library=B9s Instructional Material Collection useful in my
classroom instruction.
The Library=B9s Instructional Materials meet the needs of my students.
The library has enough copies of items in the Instructional Materials
I am satisfied with the currency of the Library=B9s Instructional Materials
I am satisfied with the variety of Instructional Materials to meet my needs=
In general, I am satisfied with the Library=B9s Instructional Materials
Collection. And, of course, Additional comments section.

I did a lot of research before my multiple assessments and was quite
surprised how little direction there is out there for us. Maybe this is
something we should begin focusing on to share among our many jobs we do.
