大學教師如何看待圖書館的角色(2015)

2015年的Ithaka S+R US Faculty Survey 調查報告最近出爐,主要的發現有:

Ithaka S+R US Faculty Survey 2015

  • Discovery starting points remain in flux. After faculty members expressed strongly preferring starting their research with a specific electronic research resource/database as compared to other starting points in previous cycles of this survey, they are now reporting being equally as likely to begin with a general purpose search engine as they are with a specific electronic research resource/database. Furthermore, the online library website/catalog has become increasingly important for conducting research since the previous cycle of the survey.

    教師仍然優先至特定的電子資料庫或網站找資料,但趨勢有點下滑。使用一般性搜尋引擎者呈穩定成長,較令人訝異的是優先利用圖書館網站或館藏目錄的比例大幅成長,報告認為有可能是圖書館導入資源探索服務的關係。而進到圖書館裡找資料的比例則持續下降。

  • Interest in supporting students and their competencies and learning outcomes shows signs of surging. Since the previous cycle of the survey, there has been an increase in the share of faculty members who believe that their undergraduate students have poor research skills and a substantial increase in the perceived importance of the role of the library in helping undergraduate students develop research, critical analysis, and information literacy skills.

    教師認為圖書館在下圖中幾個角色上扮演著很重要的角色的比例,可以看出在資訊素養、研究技巧、提供教師支援等方面有較大比例的成長。

  • Faculty members prefer to be self-reliant in their data management and preservation processes. Faculty members tend to favor tools that allow them to manage or preserve their data on their own as opposed to support from other entities within and outside of their college or university. Nearly 90% of respondents organize these data on their own computer.

    對於研究資料/數據的管理,絶大多數都是放在教師自己的電腦裡,其次為雲端硬碟,存放在學校或圖書館提供的系統則少之又少。

  • There is no observable trend towards a format transition for monographs. Faculty members’ preference for using scholarly monographs in various ways in print format rather than digital format has, if anything, increased since the previous cycle of the survey.

    不同領域的教師對紙本及電子版學術性資料的重要性有著很大的差異,紙本及電子版各有所長。

  • Traditional scholarly incentives continue to motivate behaviors around research and its dissemination. Respondents generally believe that more recognition should be awarded for traditional research publications, such as journal articles and books, as compared to research products, such as data, images, media, and blog posts. And respondents performing research are most interested in reaching scholars in their specific subdiscipline or field of research and most frequently share their findings in peer-reviewed journals and published conference proceedings, consistent with findings with the previous cycle of the survey.
