The Baron-Forness Library will be administering the LibQual+ survey from Nov. 2-20.
LibQual+ is a survey developed by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), and has been administered at over 1,200 libraries.
The purpose of the survey is to “foster a culture of excellence in providing library service, help libraries better understand user perceptions of library service quality, collect and interpret library user feedback systematically over time, provide libraries with comparable assessment information from peer institutions, identify best practices in library service and enhance library staff members’ analytical skills for acting and interpreting data,” as stated in a press release.
The survey has been going on every 3 years since 2006 here at Edinboro.
The library is requesting that members of the university participate by taking the survey.
The survey results will be analyzed and compared to past years results, as well as compared to other libraries.
“We encourage everyone to take the survey. This is a great opportunity to give us feedback and allows us to ensure that we are serving the needs of the university and community as a whole,” said librarian Patrick Mundt, the survey administrator.
All responses are anonymous.
Upon completion of the survey, you can become eligible to win campus bookstore gift cards if you provide your email at the end of the survey.
The survey link will be emailed, as well as available on the library’s website, or at http:// libguides.edinboro.edu/survey.
