Online Course Support Librarian Program: 2021 Student Survey Assessment Report

The essentials and history of the Online Course Support Librarian Program

Online Course Librarian Survey 2021

The Online Course Support Librarian program survey was carried out during Academic Year 2020-2021. This is the fourth assessment of this program, and it was previously assessed in 2012, 2015, and 2018.  

In AY 2020-2021, librarians were embedded into 248 classes and 361 students responded the survey. 

Librarians met in the summer of 2020 to update the survey questions. The survey was created and administered through SpringShare's LibWizard. 

The students were sent an email via Canvas with a link to the survey after each semester of the 2020-2021 AY. Results were complied and assessed for the program's strengths as well as areas that need improvement. 

Overall, sixty-four percent of students agree or strongly agree that the online course librarian improved their research skills and understanding of available library resources and services.
