Tell the UCF Libraries what you think!

Posted on: Nov 27, 2007 @ 4:15:49 pm

Your UCF Libraries would like to serve students better!
Tell the UCF Libraries what you think ---take the LibQUAL+ survey at It will take 10-15 minutes to answer the questionnaire.
In previous years, the UCF Libraries has conducted this survey and found it to be very useful. Previous surveys gave the Libraries feedback which has been used to make decisions about new services that include Infusion, the new learning space on the main floor of the Orlando campus library. Student commentary from previous surveys has contributed to a redesign of the Library Web pages, and to an examination of the use of library facilities. The survey was developed by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and is a large-scale, user-based assessment of library effectiveness. It has been used by thousands of libraries and will allow UCF to compare our library service quality to other peer libraries.
