2011 LibQUAL+ @Sacramento State

2011 LibQUAL+ @Sacramento State

To assist the University Library in planning for the future, Sacramento State faculty, students and staff will be invited, by email, to participate in LibQUAL+, a survey developed by the ARL (Association of Research Libraries). This widely used and well-established survey instrument measures quality of library services, facilities and collections and helps to identify ways to improve them.

An invitation to participate in the LibQUAL+ survey will be sent via email to a random sample of Sacramento State faculty, staff and students. Those not selected to participate, but would like to take the survey, may do so by contacting the LibQUAL+ team at:

The survey will be available between April 4th and April 22nd, 2011. The survey consists of 8 core questions and takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. Participation in the online survey  is voluntary and responses are anonymous.  ARL will compile the responses and provide each participating library with the cumulative data for its library.

In appreciation for completing the survey, you will have an opportunity to win a $200 gift certificate the the University Bookstore as well as other prizes. If you wish to enter the drawing for the gift certificate or other prizes, complete the survey and include your Sacramento State email address. [Your email will not be linked to your responses]. Prize winners will be notified using the email address entered in the survey.

Survey results will be available to the Sacramento State community in Fall 2011. Details will be posted on the Library's LibQUAL+ website and linked from the Library website.

If you have any questions about the LibQUAL+ survey, please view the Frequently Asked Questions or contact the LibQUAL+ team at

Thank you in advance for helping the University Library better understand your library and information needs.
