The Community College Libraries and Academic Support for Student Success (CCLASSS) student survey is part of a multi-phase project which has been funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) [RE-96-17-0113-17]. Seven community colleges participated in their own customized instance of the CCLASSS student survey. The questionnaire covers topics in several key areas including students' personal and professional goals and objectives, as well as unique challenges students face in achieving these goals.

A series of service concepts was tested to determine how valuable a variety of services might be for students. These service concepts include: the aid of a social worker; the ability to borrow and access various technologies; child care services; civic engagement opportunities; workshops on digital privacy issues; access to a single point of contact for navigating college services broadly; access to a personal librarian; and opportunities to display and share coursework. All respondents randomly received four out of eight of the service concepts. Demographic variables in this study include age, race, and gender.

The Community College Libraries and Academic Support for Student Success (CCLASSS) survey was intended to closely examine students personal and professional goals and objectives, as well as unique challenges students face in achieving these goals. We also investigated the value of several service concepts that could be implemented or improved upon within the seven community colleges, for which resources had already been allocated for at the outset of the project, or other community colleges more broadly.
