INTRODUCTION At the request of the new University Librarian, Western's Office of Survey Research and Office of Institutional Assessment and Testing worked with the Library's faculty and staff to conduct a series of surveys focusing on library resources and services. These surveys were intended to provide a base of information to help guide an in-depth assessment and planning effort aimed at improving Western's library. During Fall quarter, surveys were conducted of faculty, administration/staff, returning undergraduates with more than 120 credits, returning graduate students, newly entering undergraduate and graduate students, the library faculty and staff, and community library users. This issue of Focus reports the findings of one of these surveys:the survey of Western administrators and staff. While WWU administrators and staff may make less use of Western's library than faculty or students, their use is significant (we find that over one-third use the Western libraries at least monthly) and their input to the planning process is important. Administrators and staff completed a brief survey concerning their own use and evaluation of library holdings, facilities and services. This report summarizes basic findings from the faculty survey.
