Report Of Survey On Library Resources Now Available

A survey was conducted by UNB Libraries in Spring 2016 seeking information on the use of library resources for research and teaching. Participation by faculty was high, and the feedback from the survey confirmed the importance placed on Library-provided access to critical journals and books. The survey results also revealed a growing dependence on streaming video for classroom teaching and a growing acceptance of ebooks. The survey findings have been compiled and the report has been posted to //lib.unb.ca/collections/. UNB Libraries are grateful to all those who took the time to complete the survey.
