This report on the Missouri State University Libraries was based upon surveys and focus sessions. The initial survey was conducted in fall, 2011 with focus sessions in spring, 2012 and a report in summer, 2012. The intended cycle was to conduct a survey every other year, and in the subsequent investigations focus on specific questions of interest to the Libraries. Subsequently in fall of 2013 the Survey Group (Cline, Herrick, Jones, Lambert, and Stout) conducted a second survey focusing on students and library spaces, and on faculty and perceptions about student use patterns and information literacy or readiness and about library resources. These were followed by focus sessions and flip chart surveys in the spring of 2014. There were 235 respondents for the student survey and 64 respondents for the faculty survey. While some aspects of the survey covered the entire range of services offered by the MSU Libraries, most questions focused on services and spaces in the Meyer Library.
