Part 5: Web-Only Tables and Documents

NOTE: The tables and documents in Part 5 are available only in the Web version of this report.

Table 3b reports the responses to question 1 in the study survey but differs from Table 3a in sorting the responses according to the Carnegie Classification of institutions. The left-most column lists eleven different types of institutions, with subtotals provided for three groups of institution types where there are enough responses to make such subgroupings informative. Overall response data for each question, taken from Table 3a, are reported in bold face type. Data for each institution type follow, with the data for institutional groupings reported in italic type. The chi-square factor is reported only where the responses for a given institutional type, or a given institutional grouping, vary in a statistically significant way from the overall (i.e., Table 3a) responses to the individual question. The last two columns describe the nature of the shift of responses in individual institutions, or institutional groups, compared to the overall responses. These columns also report the relative amplitude of the shift in responses. So, for instance, in question 1a regarding the growth of library staff, there was a shift in responses among doctoral/research universities-intensive (both public and private) away from “not a factor” (0 on the scale) toward the middle of the scale (positions 3 and 4). Among all baccalaureate colleges taken as a group, there was a shift away from “not a factor” toward “weak motivator.” The amplitude of the shift for baccalaureate colleges (2.5) was almost twice that of the shift for doctoral/research universities-intensive (private).

Table 3c reports the responses to question 1 in the study survey but differs from Table 3a in sorting the responses according to the year when projects were completed. The left-most column lists eleven different years. Overall response data for each question, taken from Table 3a, are reported in bold face type; data for each year follow. The chi-square factor is reported only where the responses for a given year vary in a statistically significant way from the overall (i.e., Table 3a) responses for the individual question. The last pair of columns describes the direction and relative magnitude of the shift in responses for a given year, compared to the overall responses. So, for instance, in question 1a regarding the growth of library staff, there was a shift in responses among projects completed in 1993 away from the overall “not a factor” (0 on the response scale) toward “intermediate motivation” (3 on the scale); this shift was a relatively large 1.9 in magnitude.

Table 4b reports the responses to questions 2–13 in the study survey but differs from Table 4a in sorting the responses according to the Carnegie Classification of institutions. The left-most column lists eleven different types of institutions, with subtotals provided for three groups of institution types where there are enough responses to make such subgroupings informative. Overall response data for each question, taken from Table 3a, are reported in bold face type. Data for each institution type follow, with the data for institutional groupings reported in italic type. The chi-square factor is reported only where the responses for a given institutional type vary in a statistically significant way from the overall (i.e., Table 3a) responses to the individual question. The last two columns describe the shift of responses in individual institutions compared to the overall responses. These columns also report the relative amplitude of the shift in responses. So, for instance, in question 2 regarding the influence of “vision” statements on project planning, there was an increase in affirmative responses among Master’s Colleges and Universities II (both public and private) compared to the overall data.

Table 4c reports the responses to questions 2–13 in the study survey but differs from Table 4a in sorting the responses according to the year when projects were completed. The left-most column lists eleven different years. Overall response data for each question, taken from Table 3a, are reported in bold face type; data for each year follow. The chi-square factor is reported only where the responses for a given year vary in a statistically significant way from the overall (i.e., Table 3a) responses for the individual question. The last pair of columns describes the direction and relative magnitude of the shift in responses for a given year, compared to the overall responses. So, for instance, in question 2 regarding the influence of “vision” statements on project planning, there was an increase in affirmative responses for projects completed in 1996 and a decrease in affirmative responses in 1999, compared to the overall data.
