For Immediate Release

STILLWATER -After the OSU Library sends out their LibQUAL+® survey, three lucky, undergraduate students could win fantastic prizes.

On Feb. 22, a random sample of 50 percent of the undergraduate students at OSU will receive an email inviting them to take the online LibQUAL+® survey. Students will be asked about minimum, perceived and desired levels of service quality. This information helps libraries assess and improve services.

“Providing exceptional service is always our goal,” Karen Neurohr, assessment librarian, said. “This survey is just one tool we use to help improve Library services.”

Participate are eligible for a chance to win a 32 inch, flat-screen, HD television, a 12.1 mega-pixel camera or a 32 GB iPod Touch. Students may enter the drawing by including their email address when they complete the survey. Survey responses are confidential. No identifying links between responses and the individual responding will be retained.

In 2008, the OSU Library received a 24 percent response rate from undergraduates in a similar study. We hope this year’s response will be just as exceptional,” Neurohr, said.

The survey will take about eight minutes to complete and winners of the contest will be announced after spring break. While a total of three survey invitations will be sent, taking the survey multiple times does not increase one’s chances of winning.
