The New Mexico State University Library will be participating in the 2011 LibQUAL+ Triads Survey this month. The NMSU Library is one of only a few academic libraries across the country taking part in this pilot testing of the LibQUAL+ Triads system, developed by the Association of Research Libraries. This nationally administered electronic survey assesses library service quality and identification of best practices.
As we plan for the Library’s future, it is important that we understand the perceptions and expectations of our constituents so that we may provide the services and resources they need to be successful.
“Survey participation is important so that we know how the Library can best serve the New Mexico State University community,” said Library Dean Elizabeth A. Titus.
NMSU’s Office of Institutional Analysis will send introductory email messages with the link to the survey to a random sampling of 1,000 undergraduates, 1,000 graduate students and 500 faculty members in early November. All responses will be confidential and anonymous.
Respondents will be offered the opportunity to enter a drawing for one of three $50 Target gift cards or one of ten $25 Barnes & Noble gift certificates. Should anyone have questions regarding their rights as a research subject, they may contact the New Mexico State University IRB Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
