Metropolitan State’s Library and Information Services is distributing a survey from March 28 to April 29. The survey, called LibQUAL+, takes 7–10 minutes to complete online. The survey data is used to improve library services and compare performance with that of other academic libraries nationally.

“LibQUAL+ will tell us what services are most important to students, faculty and staff, and how our library is doing providing those services,” said Chris Schafer, dean, Library and Information Services. “This will help inform our strategic planning and priorities.”

Check your Metro State e-mail accounts for a message that includes the link to the survey. Because the library survey runs concurrently with an Information Technology survey, half of all students, staff, and faculty will receive an e-mail containing link to the LibQUAL+ survey and the other half will be asked to complete the IT survey. Participation in this study is voluntary and personally identifiable information is not collected.

At the end of the survey, participants may submit their email address for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the Metropolitan State University Bookstore. If you have questions about the survey, contact Ruth Zietlow at ruth.zietlow@metrostate.edu.
