Library concludes LibQual+ survey

The University Library completed another successful library quality survey, LibQual+, recently.

The survey ran from Feb. 28 to Mar. 18 and elicited responses from a representative sample of the University population, including faculty members and both undergraduate and graduate students. The library received a very good response rate to the survey and will use the results to improve library services in the future.

Organizers of the LibQual+ survey expect to have preliminary results available for review in the fall. The library previously ran LibQual+ surveys in 2005 and 2008, and the findings from those endeavours have improved the library in a number of ways. For a full look at the LibQual+ process, see You can also view the full report from the 2005 questionnaire at this website.

Those who completed the 2011 survey, and also submitted their e-mail address, were eligible to win one of five randomly drawn $100 University Bookstore gift certificates. This year's winners were: Chrystanus Awagu, Md Rahman, Breann Labatte, Tiffany Muller Myrdahl and Darren Finlayson.

The Library thanks everyone for their participation.
