Libraries Conducting Survey on Services and Resources

By Marketing and Communications | 03-19-2019


College Station, TX (March 2019)-The Texas A&M University Libraries are conducting LibQUAL+, a user-centered survey that enables students and faculty to rate the Libraries’ current services and resources as well as identify future needs and priorities. In addition to specific questions, a free-text comments box provides participants with the opportunity to directly share their insights about the Libraries.

 

Past survey results have helped us make better renovation decisions and create spaces that adapt to all types of learning. We have also launched new programs based on what we heard including the development of new tools to enhance the visibility and scholarship of Aggie researchers, as well as new services in the area of data management.

 

The survey will be available from March 19-April 19 at https://www.libqual.org/survey/RWSLDA72NEJ86X8HRA.

 

Once the survey is completed, you will have the opportunity to participate in a random drawing. Ten winners will be selected and will choose between an Alexa Echo Dot, Google Home Mini, and a water-resistant JBL Bluetooth Speaker.

 

In 2001, LibQUAL+ was developed at Texas A&M with funding from a three-year NSF Grant and is currently hosted by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). It is now used by more than 1,350 libraries in 35 countries.

 

Questions about the survey can be directed to the survey administrator at maciel@tamu.edu.  Questions about participant rights can be directed to Texas A&M’s Human Research Program Office by phone at 979-458-4067, toll-free at 855-795-8636 or by email at irb@tamu.edu.
