This article outlines the history of the Doris S. Kirschner Cookbook Collection at the University of Minnesota's Magrath Library and details a survey of this collection's users. Because the collection does not circulate, the survey was undertaken to find out some information about who uses this collection and why. Respondents to the survey consisted of primarily University of Minnesota staff and their uses of the collection were varied, encompassing personal, academic, and creative uses. The results of this survey will be used as a basis for further exploration as well as targeted marketing of the collection.
