Complete Library Satisfaction Survey and Enter to Win $$$

 

Mount Royal Library continuously works to improve services and resources to meet the needs of students, faculty and the general community. We are conducting a survey that will help us to understand how we are doing as a library and how we can improve.

Select students and faculty will be sent an email invitation to complete the LibQUAL + Satisfaction Survey but we encourage all current students and faculty to participate. The survey takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete and has been a way for us to implement meaningful changes to the library over the years. Past survey feedback has led to changes such as adjusting our hours of operation, enhancing services, and website updates.

Participants will have a chance to enter a draw to receive gift cards valued up to $300.

Questions about this survey can be directed to Brian Jackson at bjackson@mtroyal.ca or 403-440-5032. Please share this notice with others who might be interested in participating.

Students Share Feedback on Library Services and Spaces

 

The Library set up a feedback table with whiteboards and colourful sticky notes at the West Entrance of the Riddell Library and Learning Centre on February 11. Thank you to all the students who took time to write down where they want to see change in the Library to better serve the MRU community, and also the high-fives for what you love the most about the people and services offered.

Library leadership received all 173 comments recorded by students throughout the day and carefully considered each one. Students weighed in on everything from group rooms, the Maker Studio, seating, to specifics on how to best communicate with Mount Royal students throughout the semester. We’re excited to look into new ways to implement change and make improvements. Look out for updates, as we expect to share any changes made that are from student suggestions. In the meantime, refer to the infographic below for answers to a portion of questions and concerns included in the feedback.
