An Assessment of Use of Fabrics and Textiles by North Carolina State University Textiles and Design Faculty

by Kridler, Terra M.

Abstract (Summary)
This study describes the results of a questionnaire web survey of faculty in the College of Textiles and College of Design at North Carolina State University. The survey was conducted to determine if and how faculty members use fabric and textile samples, if they are aware of the fabric collections available at the Textiles Library, and if an interest exists in developing an electronic database of fabric samples.

Fabric and textile samples are used by faculty for classroom teaching and demonstrations, product development research, historical studies, and research projects. Most faculty members are not aware of the collections held by the Textiles Library. However, an interest does exist in developing an electronic resource. Further study and collaboration between the Libraries and interested faculty are necessary before beginning a digitization project.
