Beis Midrash Survey (Fall, 2011)
An online and print survey was distributed among the students of Hebrew Theological College at the Beis Midrash during this past semester. The student survey can be viewed here. 8 responses were collected. A print version of the data can be accessed here. (Students who have not completed the survey and want to share their input can download the survey and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.) While this data is based on a small sample of the total student body and more responses would provide richer data, this data is useful in considering the needs of all the students. Based on the significant demand for online resources, this website was created to provide links to web resources based on subject. Our students conduct much of their resource online and it is crucial that we direct them to reliable and accurate resources. This data also indicates that students may need more instruction to access databases and professional periodicals. Bibliographic instruction sessions have been prepared to supplement the faculty's instruction as requested. The library will also be offering a series of career workshops in collaboration with Jewish Vocational Services to provide the necessary resources for our students as they embark on their careers. The library staff is responding based on this data to provide the services and resources that faculty have requested and students need.
