  • FY2006. $4,500. University Research Council Award, Seton Hall University. The project is entitled: “A National Survey of the Academic Library as Place Open 24/7: Management’s Perceptions and Concerns” The project collects and analyzes data from a national survey of academic library deans and directors on their perceptions and concerns of the library as a place open 24/7 in the United States. The study gathered 172 valid responses from a randomly selected sample of 462 (37% response rate). The results are presented in five sections: 1) characteristics of responding institutions, 2) status of library hours, 3) perceptions of library as place, 4) perceptions of student needs and impact, and 5) management concerns of a library open 24/7. The findings show how academic library deans and directors perceive a library being open 24/7 impacts student learning. The study concludes there is a strong interest in the issue, but there is no trend for libraries staying open 24/7.
