Survey of Law School Faculty, Evaluation of the Law Library 2020

Primary Research Group, a New York-based publisher of research reports and surveys about law libraries, has published the Survey of Law School Faculty, Evaluation of the Law Library 2020 Edition ($158.00US):
"This 113-page study presents data from a survey of 107 law faculty and administration from more than 60 law schools in the United States and Canada about how they feel about their law school libraries (...)"

"The study presents detailed data on overall satisfaction with the law library and with many distinct facets and features of the library and library staff. Unique data sets are available on satisfaction with interlibrary loan, group study rooms, database range and availability, information technology, information literacy training, eBook collections, journal collections, and much more (...)"

"Just a few of the report’s many findings are that:
  • Faculty in top ranked law schools were far less likely than those in lower ranked schools to think of themselves as highly proficient in legal information searching.
  • More than 91% of professors in the sample have asked a law librarian for assistance in the past year.
  • Only 6.54% of the sample had contacted a law librarian by text message in the past year.
  • Faculty was more likely than management and older faculty more likely than younger faculty to view the law library as productive and efficient.
  • Nearly 80% of survey respondents felt that the speed of response from librarians to faculty requests was excellent."
