LibQUAL+ Survey – Help the Libraries Help You And You May Win $500!

Attention all UConn Students, Faculty and Staff!

The University of Connecticut Libraries needs your help and participation in the Fall 2010 LibQUAL+TM Survey.

The LibQual+TM Survey has been used by more than 1,200 libraries internationally to periodically and consistently track, understand, and act upon their users’ opinions of library service quality.

As in the past, the LibQual+TM Survey results will inform our Libraries’ planning on how to best provide library services to the UConn community. This survey process has been reviewed by UConn’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) and all responses are confidential and will not be associated with a respondent’s e-mail address or other personal information.

One participating student* (grad or undergrad) will win a $500 GIFT CARD from the UConn Co-op!

The link to the survey can be found in your e-mail. If you missed the e-mail, have questions, or need assistance in any way, please contact
