IALS Library Reader Satisfaction Survey 2013
A survey of readers was carried out between Monday 18th March and Sunday 24 th March 2013 in order to find out how satisfied readers are with the library's collections and information services. The original two-page survey form created in 2003 was used, as it has been every year since, to ensure consistent quality measurements. Posters advertising the survey were put up throughout the library for the whole of the survey week and survey forms were continually available at the library entrance, on the Issue and Enquiry Desk and on the IALS website. Full results can be found at: http://ials.sas.ac.uk/library/satisfaction_survey_results_2013.htm
