Music Library blog posts
Here in the Libraries, we are always trying to improve our game. To help us serve our students and faculty better, we conduct periodic surveys to understand how you view our services, spaces, and materials, and how satisfied you are with your overall library experience.
From now until February 15, we will be conducting a brief user survey. Please take a moment and tell us how we’re doing.
As a way to say thank you for the feedback, all survey participants will be entered to win a $75 Amazon gift card. The survey only takes 4-5 minutes to complete, and all responses are completely confidential, so please tell us what’s really on your mind!
The more feedback we get, the better equipped we will be to improve our existing services and develop new ones to meet emerging needs.
So please take a few minutes to complete the survey. We value your feedback. And we look forward to reporting what we learn from the survey results in the coming weeks. Thank you!
