Library Survey

February 15th through March 11th, 2016


Share how you feel about our services in our LibQUAL+™ Library Survey for 2016. This survey is designed to gauge our users' general attitudes toward the Purchase College Library as well as overall satisfaction with the library. Your participation is very important.

This is your chance to provide your feedback. In addition, students can win PRIZES simply by taking the survey!

In the past, your responses to the Library Survey led directly to improvements such as:

  • increased Library hours
  • institution of Quiet Zones
  • addition of comfortable new seating
  • installation of vending machines
  • reorganization of our film collections
  • separate music collection which is easier to browse

This survey helps us identify service strengths and areas that need improvement. All survey data is de-identified (separated from your personal information). The anonymous information gathered will be used in our strategic planning process to ensure that our services are closely aligned with your expectations. The results will also enable us to compare our service quality with our peer institutions (within and outside the SUNY system), develop benchmarks, and identify best practices across institutions.

Click here to take the survey. Students may register with an email address for a chance to win one of several prizes noted below. Your personal information will not be stored or linked to your survey answers. Adding your email will include you in a randomly generated list of student participants eligible for prizes.

The survey will be available from February 15th, 2016 through March 11th, 2016, but the sooner you respond, the better.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email them to me directly at or our LibQUAL Team at
