Library user survey 2011
In May 2011 the Library ran its sixth biennial user survey online. A total of 3181 responses were received from students, staff and other library users. This response figure is equal to about seven percent of the University population.
The responses have now been analysed and the results compared with previous survey results for Monash as well as with those of 40 other participating university libraries in Australia and New Zealand.
Whilst we recorded higher scores in all but one category (see Survey summary report - pdf 423KB), the increases were modest compared to the sector-wide improvements that have taken place across all categories, including service delivery, library staff, communication, and to a lesser extent, facilities and equipment. The most dramatic improvements sector-wide were in information resources.
The survey results allow us to identify the areas to prioritise in the coming years. By looking at where a statement was rated as high in importance but the Library's performance was rated low, we can see where users think we most need to improve.
