I met with 124 students for about 45 minutes per student to assist them with their portion of our data analysis based on the survey we administered for the Slippery Rock Community Library. The students each will prepare a one-minute voiceover Powerpoint presentation about their analysis; I will then be combining these analyses into a single mp4/movie to be viewed by our community partner.
As always, it is exhausting but rewarding to meet with each student individually. We determined that the library needs to communicate more widely about its source of funding, its open times and days, and its available resources, especially internet-based resources. We found significant differences between some populations (geography-based, household-composition-based, and tenure-in-area-based) as well. It feels good to have gotten some significant feedback for the library and to be able to make some policy suggestions!
