Tell Your Students: LibQUAL Begins Feb. 22

The OSU Library is once again conducting a survey to measure library service quality and identify best practices. The survey instrument is provided through the Association of Research Libraries’ LibQUAL+ TM program. This survey gives Library users a chance to provide feedback on services. Information from the survey will be used to improve existing services for students and maek decisions about future initiatives. During this round, a random sample of undergraduate students will be invited via email to take the survey online. Participants will have the option to enter a drawing for a 32” HDTV, 12.1 mp digital camera or a 32-GB iPod Touch.
