Need a Questionnaire to Evaluate a Medical College Library

Hello dear professionals,

Actually I got an assignment to evaluate a medical college library, so I need a questionnaire to ask some questions to the user to know their satisfaction level. Please send me some questiones.

Dear Ms. Yadav;

thanks for your post.

I have the following few questions about your post:

(a) Is it for an academic purpose?  (as a part of dissertation work or something like that) or a sponsored project offered by a funding agency? because the format will differ and in the second case, the focus will me more to aspects the agency wants to explore!!

I have one questionnaire which is rather ancient as I prepared that some 30 years ago and I have to update it if you are interested but mine was for academic purpose only and it was focused  to ICMR Libraries mostly. However as a Control Group I included certain specialized Medical Libraries of India (like CMC, Vellore, JIPMER, Pondicherry; PGIMER, Chandigarh, St. Johns Medical College & NIMHANS, B'lore, AIIMS, & NIH&FW, New Delhi; Kasturba Medical College Manipal & TMC, Bombay.)

You may notice that all these are Academic Medical Institutes but with high levels of research contributions.

Again,  two decades ago, Dr. Nitai Roy Chaudhury ( a LIS Link Member), myself and Sri S.K. Dey ( Ex In-Charge of CSIR-IICB Library) prepared  a questionnaire for evaluating the Medical College Libraries in Calcutta & W.B.

However, in those days the IT applications in Libraries were quite low or virtually nonexistent, while if you want to prepare a questionnaire at this date, you have to restructure them to a great extent!!

In case you are a Medical Librarian yourself, you can perceive the changes from your experience but if you are not, then it will be rather difficult to prepare a comprehensive questionnaire. 

(b) What will be your coverage? all India or a particular State or some states?

However, as your post indicates, IN CASE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO EVALUATE JUST ONE MEDICAL COLLEGE LIBRARY IT WILL BE A RATHER QUITE DIFFERENT PHENOMENON.

In case you feel that I be of any help, you can contact me.

Sincerely,

Siddhartha S. Ray, Calcutta

thanks a lot sir

Ms. Archana Yadav

Your post lends me to assume that you are interested in the case study of "a medical college library".  In that case what I suggest is - Do an extensive and intensive study of the services and resources of the library in question and

Draw out a list of all the services presently being provided by the library

Draw out a list of all the resources (print and online) housed by the library

Compare and contrast this list with  major academic medical institutions of the country.

Frame a questionnaire asking users if they are happy with the services being presently rendered by the library. yes/ no if no what services would they want their library to provide them. Keep questions open ended so that users can freely answer these questions.

Likewise you can repeat the same thing with the resources housed in the library.  Are the users happy with the resources  currently housed in the library.  If not what resources would they want the library to house

 You can ask users if they desire inclusion of services/resources, (the information of  which you will have gathered studying other major academic medical institutions of the country).

 

Good luck and wishing you success in your endeavour.

Siddu

thanx sir
