For Immediate Release

STILLWATER -Three lucky OSU students are enjoying their prizes after participating in the OSU Library’s recent LibQUAL survey.

Dalton Kelley, a mechanical engineering senior, won a 12.1 mega-pixel digital camera; Joseph Underwood, a mechanical engineering sophomore, won a 32 GB iPod Touch; and Elizabeth Hinojos, an apparel merchandising freshman, went home with the biggest prize of all, a 32-inch, flat-screen, HDTV.

Sheila Johnson, dean of Libraries, presented the prizes at a public reception. “Providing quality service is our top priority at the OSU Library, and we value the input of our students, faculty and staff. The LibQUAL survey is just one way we obtain information about how well we meet needs,” Johnson said.

The prize drawing was offered as an incentive to encourage participation in the LibQUAL+ survey. Students were asked about the Library’s current service quality and the changes they desired. This information will help the Library assess and improve services.

Last month, the online LibQUAL+ survey was sent to a random sample of 50 percent of the undergraduate students at OSU. From the surveyed participants, Kelley, Underwood and Hinojos were randomly selected to win the prizes.

While the LibQUAL survey has closed, feedback regarding Library services is always welcome. Visit www.library.okstate.edu and click the feedback button to comment on any Library resource or service.
