Will You Be Chosen?

George Mason University - Wed, 10/26/2016 - 13:12

During the first three weeks of November, the University Libraries will be conducting a short LibQUAL+® survey to measure library service quality and identify best practices.

Please help us so we can help you. When you voiced your concerns about noise levels in the new Fenwick Library building, we listened – the Pick Your Spot campaign and designated study zones were the result. We would like you to share your thoughts with us again.

The goal of the University Libraries is to foster innovation, originality, and imagination by qualitatively managing access to scholarship and information, providing expert consultation in the research process, actively teaching the effective and critical use of information, and disseminating research and scholarship through publishing endeavors.

We appreciate your honest assessment on whether we are achieving these goals, and LibQUAL+® is one tool that will help us measure our impact.

LibQUAL+® was developed by the Association of Research Libraries to help libraries better understand user perceptions of library service quality. Since 2000, more than 1,200 libraries have participated in LibQUAL+® (including Mason), which enables us to assess our service quality in comparison with that of our peer institutions. As an institution designated with the highest Carnegie Research classification, this input is vital.

Mason faculty and students will be randomly selected to take the survey. The data collected from the surveys will be held confidentially and reported to the University Libraries anonymously.

Check your e-mail on November 1 to see if you were chosen.
