Abstract

UK Libraries Plus, a reciprocal borrowing program offered to distance learning students, part time students and students on teaching practice, is evaluated. Survey results assessing student satisfaction are presented, with emphasis on data representing education student satisfaction. Included in the survey were questions on courses taken, modes of study, age, use and usefulness of services, and how students became learned of services. The study found that most education students were in their thirties, regarded the services as important or vital to their studies, and tended to use only one library in addition to the home institution library. Limitations of UK Libraries Plus were identified as a quota limiting the number of books students could borrow, and lack of access to computers and the Internet.
