Title: Academic libraries in Saudi Arabia: A comparative study of the performance of their information services and support facilities
Abstract: The main purpose of this study was to measure the performance of academic library information service points and physical support facilities at seven universities in Saudi Arabia. These measurements provide the means to critically analyze the library program and its operations and make specific recommendations for changes or improvements. The study applied three measures developed by Van House et al. (1990): Facilities Use Rate, Services Points Use, and Reference Transactions. The study investigated if any significant differences existed in the use rates of services points and supportive facilities among the seven Saudi university libraries and between two designated groups--large versus small universities. The study used different individual methods to collect the data: (1) interviews with librarians and department heads, (2) review of the literature and the related library documents and reports, and (3) masurement of the information services points and facilities.
