The Round Rock Campus Library along with Alkek Library in San Marcos participated in Texas Library Snapshot Day this past Tuesday, October 27th. Texas Library Snapshot Day is a statewide initiative in which libraries take a day to get a “snapshot” of how their patrons use resources. Staff at the Round Rock Campus Library handed out brief surveys to patrons and kept track of certain usage statistics.
On October 27th, 2015, 169 students, faculty, and staff as well as members of the community visited the Round Rock Campus Library. Students stated through the survey that they use the library in variety of ways, from a place to complete coursework and research to seek entertainment to job hunt or work on perfecting a resume, to name a few. Library computers were logged onto 74 times while the RRC Library homepage received 264 hits throughout the day.
The Texas Library Snapshot Day occurs only once a year. However, the Round Rock Campus Library is open year round (with the exception of holidays, days around Christmas and New Year’s, and Spring Break) to provide library services to the students, faculty, and staff of Texas State University. Take a moment to come in and find out more.
