Client Surveys

2015 Library Client Survey

***Scheduled for May 2015***

2012 Library Client Survey results

Between 8 – 31 May 2012, CDU Library conducted its biennial library client survey. Once again library staff are our top performers filling the top 4 spots on the performance rankings list. Other top performers included:

  • when I am away from campus I can access the library resources and services I need
  • The Library website provides useful information
  • Online resources (ejournals, databases, ebooks) meet my learning / research needs

Overall performance levels showed a slight increase from 80.4% in 2010 to 80.5% in 2012 The most significant gaps (Improvement-Performance) are in the following areas:

  • The Library's Summon (one search discovery tool) is easy to use
  • A computer is available when I need one
  • Laptop facilities (e.g. desks, power) in the Library meet my needs

The detailed data analysis report and free form comments are providing us with some excellent insights into what our clients think we do well and what we can look at when determining priorities for action over the coming months. The report is available below, an action plan will be available in August.

Congratulations to Anna Heythorpe and Jane Francis winners of our $200 gift cards.
