ABSTRACT

This paper reports a case study in which Saracevic and Kantor’s derived taxonomy of library services was applied to qualitative data gathered from sixteen university library users. Using face-to-face interview method, we collected user responses related to the reasons of using services, aspects of interaction, and results of using services. Specific codes from the taxonomy were applied to the verbal expressions. The results show that library services are being used for a variety of purposes and that this approach enables us to effectively capture and classify service value expressed in users’ own words. The taxonomy is evaluated to be quite comprehensive and scalable.
