Faculty, Undergraduate, and Graduate/Professional Student Surveys for Libraries

Ithaka S+R developed our local survey program in response to the increasing interest of library managers to gain better insight into the perceptions of their faculty members, undergraduate, and graduate/professional students as they make strategic decisions.

Taking a deliberately high-level approach, the local surveys are designed to inform you about the changing needs of important campus communities in order to help you plan for the right strategy and mix of services to carry forward into the future.

All libraries run a core survey to ensure comparability with other institutions and have the option to add customized modules as well. For the local faculty survey, institutions can compare results directly with our 2015 US Faculty Survey findings.
