discussion and review of Library survey project. After some discussion
was decided to have survey go back to survey sub-committee (Dr.
Dahlstrom, Ms. Davies and Ms. Heater) for review and update. Sub-committee
will bring back to LAC on November 20. Survey had been sent to
Human Subjects Committee, discussion was if revised would it need
to go back to Human Subjects Committee for review. May not have
to submit revised survey to Human Subjects Committee. We’re
waiting for their reply concerning clarifications we recently
sent them about how the survey is going to be used. Once approved
by LAC and approval from Human Subjects Committee, will distribute
survey electronically and in classrooms. Goal is to distribute
survey in late January, early February 2003 with collection at
the end of February, with a response of 400-500 completed surveys.
LAC faculty members will discuss among colleagues regarding distribution
of survey in classes. Would like to have closure of survey by
the end of May 2003.
