The Library will be conducting a Library User Survey next month. On Oct. 2, via email, random samples of faculty and staff, graduate and professional students, and undergraduates will be invited to take part in the survey. The invitation will contain a link to the survey that will be conducted through Oct. 21, 2012.

There are three different surveys: One focuses on faculty and staff needs. A second focuses on the needs of graduate and professional students. Undergraduates will receive a third survey that is geared towards their academic needs. The surveys are similar but contain some differences in questions that will address a number of specific needs of individual user groups.

The strategic plan of Iowa State University and that of the Library influenced the goals and content of this survey. This survey aims to measure the quality, impact and importance of the library's services and collections.

Your input will help shape the future of the library! As a result of input from previous Library surveys, Bookends Café was opened, multi-media technology tools were introduced in the Learning Connections Center, more e-journals were purchased, and public study spaces have continued to be upgraded and increased.

For additional information see the detailed FAQ, or if you want more information or if you do not receive the survey, but would like to participate, contact Sarah Passonneau, Assistant to the Dean of the Library, at 515-294-2117, or at
