Sharing the Results: You Talk. We Listen. We All Win!

In the spring of 2013, Rod Library conducted the LibQUAL+ survey, better known as "You Talk. We Listen. We All Win!" We asked the campus community to tell us how well we are doing as a library, what we could improve upon, and to give us insight into what the UNI campus community expects from Rod Library.  We are happy to share the results with all of you.  You can find a summary report, a full report, and a spreadsheet of the comments we received at Assessment Results.  


Congratulations to our iPad mini winner, Chance!

Thanks to all of you who participated in Rod Library's You Talk. We Listen. We All Win! survey! We had over 800 respondents, which is fabulous!  We want to congratulate Chance on winning the grand prize of an iPad mini!  The other prize winners have been notified via their UNI email address.  So, be sure to check your UNI e-mail and see if you are a winner!

Rod Library will take all of your valuable feedback from the survey so that we can serve you even better in the future!
