The NYUAD Library Survey

Your Library, Your Voice

The NYU Abu Dhabi Library wants to hear from you. From February 6 to 26, the NYUAD Library is collecting feedback from the entire NYUAD community of students, staff, and faculty. We want to know what you like about our services, spaces, and collections, and what you would like to see more of in the Library. 

The NYUAD Library Survey

This LibQUAL survey is an anonymous, web-based survey administered by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) asking library users their minimum, desired, and perceived service levels in these areas: library space, information access, and customer service.

How Does Completing the Survey Help Us?

The results provide NYUAD Library with valuable data for long term strategic planning. Feedback from the survey also helps the Library to better understand users’ perceptions and opinions which translate into service upgrades and improvement.

Comments from the 2016 NYUAD Library survey resulted in real changes, such as extended opening hours, additional soft seating, spaces for quiet study in the upstairs Reading Room, as well as expansion of the Library's Leisure Reading collection. Take the NYUAD Library survey today.

The survey’s goals include:

  • Fostering a culture of excellence in providing library services
  • Helping libraries better understand user perceptions of library service quality
  • Collecting and interpreting library user feedback systematically over time
  • Providing libraries with comparable assessment information from peer institutions
  • Identifying best practices in library services
  • Enhancing library staff members' analytical skills for interpreting and acting on data

How Long Is the Survey?

The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and is mobile friendly, allowing you to complete it at your convenience.
