2011 Student Survey Results

During May the library conducted its annual student survey, asking students to rate and comment on the library services and collections. Results from the survey are used to determine how well student needs are being met by the library.

According to survey results, 98% of students rated the library as Good or Excellent overall. The following areas were also rated very highly by student participants in the survey:

91% of respondents said that the electronic databases are Good or Excellent.
97% of respondents rated the e-books collection as Good or Excellent.
90% of respondents rated the research guides as Good or Excellent.
98% of respondents reported that the library collection was Mostly Adequate or Always Adequate at meeting their research needs.
96% of respondents reported that the on-site library resources are Good or Excellent.

The Library staff would like to thank all of the students and faculty who participated in the survey. Over the next few weeks the survey results will be tabulated and analyzed for areas needing improvement. Special attention will be paid to areas in which we can improve our services including maintaining a studious atmosphere, offering up-to-date, dependable technology resources, and providing excellent customer service.

Please feel free to share any additional comments with the library by sending us an e-mail.
