Portland State University. Library -- Evaluation, Academic libraries -- Aims and objectives, Academic libraries -- Quantitative studies
The information age has significantly impacted academic libraries roles in higher education. Patrons’ diverse needs require that academic libraries provide dynamic services and resources. From a staffing perspective, academic libraries are exploring the type of skill sets and related staffing types (i.e. librarians, non-librarian professionals, and support staff) needed to meet patrons’ complex needs. The purpose of this study is to examine how trends in staffing type levels are impacting the provision of services and resources at the Portland State University (PSU) Library. A comparative analysis of quantitative data for the period of 2002-2012 from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics compares the PSU Library to peer institution libraries.
