About 55 students took a study break for cake or to write love notes to GALILEO on flip charts; 31 answered an iPad survey about their favorite databases and then were entered into a drawing for gift certificates from local Decatur businesses, such as Chick-fil-A, Java Monkey, Raging Burrito and Yogurt Tap.
Survey respondents indicated that 42% use GALILEO once a week while another 20% find its resources helpful once a month; 6.45% use the databases daily; 25.81% use them once a semester and a final 6.45% agreed, “Not often – I should check out these goodies while I have access to them (24/7 from all over the world)!”
Scotties’ top GALILEO database favorites were:
ebooks on EBSCOhost 48.39%
Tie: Academic Search and Science & Technology Collection 32.26%
Tie: Images and Newspaper Source 29.03%
