A Note from Our Library Director:
On Monday October 10, 2011, the UT Tyler Robert R. Muntz Library will again participate in the national library quality survey called “LibQual”. We have participated twice before and do so only every three years.
This survey gives us lots of valuable feedback. Based on comments from the first time we did the survey, we added more computers and expanded library hours. The second time we did the survey we tried to address the noise issues that many patrons brought up. As a result, we established the red and green “zones” and also added soundproofing to the group study rooms.
Starting on Monday, you’ll see posters around campus and other marketing material. You’ll also see a link on the Library’s website and within Blackboard.
This year we are participating in the LITE version of the online survey, so takers will receive a random selection of the questions. For patrons who may prefer to fill out a paper copy of the survey, we will make some print copies available at the Reference desk for distribution if anyone asks for it. Please note that all surveys are anonymous. Any email addresses submitted for prize eligibility are totally separated from the submissions.
We strongly encourage the University community to take the survey. As a small participation incentive, we’ll be giving away campus dining gift cards (12 campus dining gift cards worth $25 each) and gift cards to the Campus Bookstore (1 each of $200, $150, $75, $50, $25).
The Library Quality Survey will run for three weeks, October 10-October 28th.
For questions or further information, patrons may contact Jeanne Standley, Library Director at jstandley AT uttyler DOT edu or at 903-566-7351 or any of our other librarians.
